DECKED - On the level
Deck art -
deck art stems from classic street culture and street art/graffiti and dates back to the early 1920’s with gang cultures in major US cities.
In the 1970’s, graffiti became a common practice, creating movements through street art and graffiti.
Skateboarding was born at a similar time to street art and graffiti and they both share many of the same characteristics: rebelliousness, creativity, and the street.
The decks are in the collection of Shane Wood. Many were lost in a storage facility fire - Kilbirnie, Wellington, 2014.
