Skateistan Project: Skate Deck
- Ollie Up!
- I was recently asked to create an art deck for a Skateistan auction in NYC. The final design was painted on the topside of the deck to better facilitate wall mounting and discourage it getting used and destroyed.Skateistan was founded by Australian Oliver Percovich who first traveled to Afghanistan in February 2007. The organization's programs engage Afghan children through skateboarding and provide them greater access to education, healthcare, and cultural opportunities.
