DeLeva Skate Decks

These are used skateboard decks. I really like working on used decks because there are so many random, unpurposeful marks and scars. It’s about the energy that the skaters smash and scrape into the wood as they basically use the “literal streets” as a tool to abrade them. I add to these wooden diaries as a way of acknowledging the streets, city life and the times we currently live in.

Medium: wood skateboard deck, with mixed media.
