Skateboard art this weekend
Yesterday I found myself in Technopolis, where 7ply project is being set up. It's the fifth year this event will be taking place, combining all elements of street culture (skate, street art and hip hop music) and the second time I will be attending. Do you remember last year, my dear Queen B?
More than 120 artists from Greece and abroad (among them my boyfriend and lots of my friends) will be using the skateboard deck as inspiration, but also as the actual canvas for their unique creations. A committee will chose the best skateboard to be put into production by Greek skateboard manufacturing company Propaganda Rolling co. as a limited edition design.
As you can see, people are working furiously to get the event up and running this weekend.
The entrance is free of charge and if you decide to show up, other than the skateboard art you will also enjoy a skate show by the most famous greek riders, live graffiti by german artist Flying Fortress and greek artist Ser and on Saturday, live music by Zoltan Tribe, Logos Apeilh, Killa Kela and Foreign Beggars.
