Concrete to Canvas 2 by ten4magazine




Concrete to Canvas: More Skateboarders’ Art is released today. 

Concrete to Canvas: Skateboarders’ Art was the first book to bring together a wide variety of artwork produced solely by artists who are skateboarders. Concrete 2 Canvas: More Skateboarders’ Art brings you even more artwork by skateboarders, featuring work by all new artists. The purpose of the books are to provide a window into what is essentially a subculture within a subculture, and to show the huge talent and diversity in genres and style, that makes it impossible to pigeon hole the artists or artwork. The books include examples of fine art, illustration, graphic design, street art, paintings, doodles and installation.The artwork itself does not necessarily directly relate to skateboarding in any way, as the object of the book is to showcase the work of artists who happen to be skateboarders, whatever form that artwork may take. 

Published by Jo Waterhouse, a winner of the 2006 Creative Class, the book is available in all good bookstores or direct from Laurence King.  

Congratulations Jo!
