Skateboarding Hall of Fame 2015

See more here IASC

The International Skateboarding Hall of Fame was created in 2009 by Todd Huber, proprietor and co-founder of SKATELAB skatepark and museum in Simi Valley, California.

“I’m the biggest fan of skateboarding, ever, and I noticed that waterskiing had a Hall of Fame. So I thought skateboarding deserves its own Hall of Fame as well,” said Todd Huber, adding: “The award has been growing steadily and is now in its sixth year. And looking around the room, all the key people in skateboarding are here tonight. That really says something about what we are doing for skateboard history.”

This sentiment was echoed by the master of ceremonies, 1970s professional skateboarder Dave Hackett who reminded the audience: “We are all privileged to have been able to follow our hearts and dreams into skateboarding.”

For the first time in Hall of Fame history, this year’s list of inductees also included professional skateboarders from the 1990s – Elissa Steamer and John Cardiel – because the period in time that is now eligible for the historic award.

Mad C “Bits and Pieces”

MADC’s opens 2nd of May at Gallery Wallworks in New York. Here is a little info on the show:

“Even though heavily abstracted, MadC’s canvases are compiled of graffiti pieces assembled through energetic, layered brush strokes. The many transparent layers create an intriguing depth in each piece. For this exhibition MadC chose to paint mainly small format pieces – bits and pieces. All 20+ canvases have never been seen before. In addition to the canvases, gallery Wallworks will release a new 8 layer MadC screen print. Gallery Wallworks and MadC welcome you to the opening on Saturday, May 2nd.”
