DIY skatespots – Richard Gilligan

The first extensive documentation of DIY skatespots, a photo book by Richard Gilligan published by 1980 editions Paris. The limited edition of 30 (signed and with a print of the image you see above) is still available. Highly recommend though of course some interesting DIY spots are missing. Due to Richard^s “democratic editing process” of which you can read in this interview.

The ROA cycle

You rarely see any videos of Peter ROA painting, below is one. And here is a video interview with the Belgian, but you better check his art, for instance his murals in Mexico and his installation at black rat projects. We need more  animals and decay!
