|Agents Provocateurs: 100 Subversive Skateboard Graphics|
by Carayol, Seb.
Skateboard graphics took a quantum leap in offensive potential after the sport was reborn aesthetically and otherwise in the 90s.Artists such asMarc McKee,Todd Francis,Mike Hill, Michael Sieben,Ed Templeton, Sean Cliver,MoishBrenman, Fos,Ben Horton,Alyasha Owerka-Moore, Eli Morgan Gesner, Jeremy Fish, Brice Raysseguier, Johnny "Mojo" Munnerlyn, Alex Kramer, Todd Bratrud, WinstonTsengand others brought dark humor and politically incorrect topics to the forefront of their illustrations.These artists intended not just to decorate and sell skateboards, but also to raise serious issues and skewer values, deliberately evoking reactions from viewers. Agents Provocateurs asks new questions of this boundary-pushing artistic genre and its place over the years. Did it save skateboarding? Is it still possible to address such controversial topics twenty years later?Whats left once all the envelopes have been pushed?
