Artist/designer/sculptor Andrew Lewicki has created some high-end skateboard art. His pieces “Goldâ€”Plated Skate Rail” and “Walnut Skate Ramp” raise the bar on these everyday skating staples. The press release mentions:
“…the city of Los Angeles has explored civic â€œsolutionsâ€ to such practices [rebellious skateboarding behavior] by installing legal skate parks and authorized graffiti walls, a tactic Lewicki exposes as both antithetical and irksome to the rebellious spirit inherent in these exploits.”
Lewicki presents an interesting, if not an almost Utopian, response with his pieces.
