Just woke up from a long nap… talk to you soon!
SKATE & CREATE
Opening: Sat, August 30, 6 pm – 9 pm
Exhibition: August 30 – October 1, 2014
The skateboard culture of Southern California played a seminal role in the early influences of many graffiti and street artists. The growth of the sport, or anti-sport, along with its strong visual component, represented a renegade vigilante attitude, like punk and while every skater was not a criminal, the graphics on the boards often abused copyright or represented darker and more anti-authoritarian attitudes. This exhibition of street art and street inspired graphics symbolizes these rich origins and pushes forward a new generation of sleek, cool, fun, and taboo imagery on skate decks that epitomizes both sub-cultures.

I first seen this Element skate video with this song and had to try and find it… Both video are great and the song is amazing.
Us here at THE STATUS FACTION got our hands in just about everything!!! This year we will be filming and hopefully wrapping up this mammoth project for a late year or early 2015 release!!!
This was part of a wall that we did, it was that was being filmed and was ruined by a extremely odd occurring buff…
Huge shout outs to Lee over at KC Street Art Gallery, The RynHam, Insurgency Inc, Downsize, Eeks Art, Ewo, and all of Kansas City!
The show was awesome, it remains open for the next couple months if you’re on Kansas City, check it out. Work is still selling!
Had a blast creating some awesome sculptures on site, a couple fantastic works of public art, and a truly fun interactive installation.
Hope you enjoy the pics!
