When attending the international MAGIC convention in Las Vegas, NV, we ran across this skateboard exhibit in the S.L.A.T.E. area. SLATE highlights the newest & latest underground street labels, fashion and lifestyles from inspiring individuals setting trends for anything related to skate/art/surf and music. The original works of art on recycled skateboards is a traveling exhibit by over 90 artists, a project of SK8OLOGY, combining counter culture with fine art. This is a small example of all the boards on display. MAGIC/S.L.A.T.E. is an insider view of trends to come and a sensory overload of creative forces combined. It’s a lot to take in, everything from product display, live art exhibits, skateboard contest, etc. The creative energy of designers and artists is beyond inspiring.
