Wes Resoborg Visits NYC

Wes Visits NYC

THE TAXI DANCE, commissioned by Queens college (NYC) as part of its Year of South Africa, represents contemporary life in South Africa, the vivid colours and energy of its cities, its distinctive street signage, and the rhythm of urban life in a nation whose economic inequalities can be crippling. Like hip hop crew BoznBuck$’s famous taxi dance the painting emphasizes cautious hope for a better future in South Africa.

There’s no right or wrong answer to, “Who did it best?” Here are a bunch of skaters sharing who they like in the latest Loveletter.

BFFS: Lyon Sessions

These Lyon dream spots get destroyed by both Flip and Cliché riders. There’s also a Gonz cameo, an amazing gap to noseslide, and Cairo has a brutal battle.

My War Jamie Thomas

Even though Jamie Thomas already had an untouchable skate legacy and was closing in on 40 years old, he still waged an epic battle for his “Cold War” ender—a trick that is gnarly by any standard.

Bust Or Bail 2: The Ripper at Clipper

Bust-or-Bail-2

The legendary Clipper spot is about to become a handicap-access elevator. A spot with so much history gets a truly gnarly send off. “Spots come and go, but Clipper is forever.” —Jake Phelps

STEVE CRACK / ARTIST STATEMENT

Hopeless, Cashless & Pathetic

“ I like to see my work as some sort of criticism towards society, religion, culture, idelogies and authority. The status quo. Our PERCEPTION of normality. The absurdity of our existence.”

Love Is In The Air

Steve ‘Crack’ deliberately deconstructs the irrelevant notions of normality that define ‘Us’ and our lives within contemporary societies. He does so by incorporating themes, symbols, words and ideas which make people feel uncomfortable and could be even considered offensive.

“ Growing up listening to Punk music and moving between different subcultures, is my primary source of influence. I like poking at taboo subjects and stirring shit up. Nothing should be exempt from ridicule and I think that ridicule is the best way to engage people to question everything. The images I forge have a nihilistic connotation, with an unhealthy dose of humor. In some way, they are a reflection of both how I perceive the world and how the world lays itself out in front of me.”

“ Even though my work is predominantly digital, I don’t limit myself to one medium. The medium I choose is at random and mostly the one I feel most comfortable with at that specific moment. Stylistically, I see myself moving somewhere between Low Brow/Comix inspired street tattoo art. ”

Burn A Church

Space Between Gallery is excited to launch it’s first solo artist Steve Crack, whom will be visiting Cape Town from Abu Dhabi to present his Solo Exhibition ‘Hopeless, Cashless and Pathetic- We Are All Going To Die’

The human species is disgustingly fascinating, weird, fucked up and fundamentally useless. We have created a world around us which only makes sense in our own context.

Never Don't Give Not Up

Politics, governments, religions, cults, gods, diseases and authority. Cures to our own diseases and solutions to man made problems. Orders without questions, a promise of an afterlife and many carrots from father state.

Clinging on to ideologies for our dear life without knowing that we are already dead.

This is an adventurous excursion into the nihilistic deconstructions of said notions and norms. A journey to realization through ridicule, satire and just plainly taking the piss out the sacred and unquestionable norms we created and live by.

Nothing is holy, nothing is sacred.
You are your own authority.’

Skateboarding for Hope Campaign Heads for Joburg

Stoneridge Skateboarding for Hope

Stoneridge Skateboarding for Hope

The next stop for the Skateboarding for Hope national tour presented by Vans is taking place at Stoneridge skate park in Edenvale, Johannesburg on Saturday, 2 May. Seasoned skaters will be on hand to present skateboarding clinics and novice skateboarders and underprivileged kids from the area are invited to come along between 09h00 and 17h00 to discover the magic of skateboarding.

The Skateboarding for Hope community outreach initiative is currently in its 5th year of operation and off to its fastest start yet with larger crowds and more youth in attendance as it makes various stops around the country. Since its inception, it has engaged with more than 100 000 people through the sport of skateboarding and has given away over 5 000 pairs of shoes, 10 000 T-shirts and almost 5 000 skateboards. The Northern Cape Provincial Government has been a great partner and has shown the vision to promote skateboarding as a way of addressing social issues in the country.

The Skateboarding for Hope road show is traveling throughout South Africa to promote skateboarding amongst local youth in the run-up to the Kimberley Diamond Cup skateboarding world championships presented by Kumba Iron Ore, a business unit of Anglo American, which will take place in Kimberley in the Northern Cape in October.

The event will also feature a TopGrom competition for kids aged thirteen and under and an open street contest for skaters aged 14 and older. TopGrom is a global campaign and has been incorporated into the Skateboarding for Hope tour for the first time this year. Skateboarding for Hope is a youth development initiative launched by the Northern Cape Provincial Government four years ago to promote skateboarding as an affordable and accessible leisure activity.

Jeremy Stone

“The Northern Cape is very pleased that initiatives such as Skateboarding for Hope and free access to a world-class training facility like Kumba Skate Plaza are available to the youth of the Northern Cape and the rest of the world. It is amazing to see the growth, development and the progress in skateboarding skills among the youth in South Africa, but particularly in the Northern Cape,” mentions John Block, MEC for the Department of Economic Affairs and Tourism of the Northern Cape Provincial Government.

According to Tim McFerran, CEO of World Skateboarding Grand Prix, the integration of TopGromSA into the KDC series of events, allows the integration of South Africa’s youngest skaters into this prestigious world championship event. “We are very serious about supporting young skateboarders worldwide and to create opportunities for them to showcase their talent. This partnership is yet another way for us to grow skateboarding in South Africa and to engage with local youth to the sport.

The contest will also see some of the country’s top skaters go head-to-head for the opportunity to qualify for a wildcard entry into the amateur street contest at the world championship event at the world-class Kumba Skate Plaza in Kimberley from 7 – 10 October 2015.

The ever-increasing list of countries due to participate in this year’s event include Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Botswana, Brasil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mauritius Islands, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Netherlands, Reunion, Russia, Swaziland, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam.

“TopGrom was created with the vision of inviting skaters aged 13 and under from around the world to be part of something much larger than any local event,” stated co-founder Sean Bittle. “The opportunity to be affiliated with an event as prestigious as the Kimberley Diamond Cup will be ego food for groms across South Africa and around the world – it’s simply amazing,” affirmed Bittle.

At The Gates & The Haunted for Witchfest 2016

At The Gates & The Haunted for Witchfest 2016

Witchdoctor Productions would like to inform you of the following. The At The Gates shows in May have been moved. Since booking At The Gates, they went on to win a Swedish Grammy, this has placed additional workload on the band and will lead to a conflict in May which has the potential to negatively impact on the show. In order to make good on the shows, At The Gates have been confirmed for WITCHFEST 2016. To make this even better they will not be coming alone. We can now also confirm that The Haunted will be at WITCHFEST 2016.

IF you bought a ticket for At The Gates through Computicket, please speak to them for a refund. Tickets bought through Witchdoctor Productions can be refunded or the money can be moved towards a ticket for WITCHFEST 2016, please email info@witchdoctorproductions.com.

They apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at WITCHFEST 2016.

In agreement with Witchdoctor Productions we have decided to move our club show appearances in May 2015 to an exclusive appearance on WITCHFEST 2016. Logistical and financial issues made the completion of these shows impossible. We apologize for this, and hope to see you on WITCHFEST 2016. Thanks for your understanding.” – At The Gates
