London’screative and cultural hub House of Vans, this week hosts perhaps its most fitting and relevant event to date. Skateboard? Check. Art created by a skateboard? Check. A Grenoble School of Art Graduate, Fabien Bonzi’s objective is to demonstrate the untapped artistic potential of a cult object. His exhibition “Slidesamples” visits this trusted artistic haven and community space, to reveal an offering that sets out to reinvent abstraction. Seasoned skateboarder Fabien swaps brush for board and quite simply rides his canvas, to create something that is truly left-field and altogether unique.
Sounds incredibly edgy and decidedly cool? Of course – this is The House of Vans. Unleash your inner boarder and experience Slidesamples from Thursday 5th of March, through to Sunday the 15th. And don’t miss the opportunity to participate and create your own board-art on Saturday the 7th, when Fabien hosts a live workshop in the House of Vans Artist Labs.
Thu 5th – Sun 15th March 2015
