Reskate is an artistic collective formed by Maria López (1980) and Javier de Riba (1985), visual artists from Donostia-San Sebastián and Barcelona respectively. They started working together creating the project Reskateboarding, which was born with the intention of rescuing abandoned skateboards and giving them a second life. From 2011 to 2014 they curated, produced and organized exhibitions around Europe until they decided to set up their art studio with the same name, Reskate.
Their workshop and studio is located in the Sants district of Barcelona. Influenced by classic sign-painting, popular culture, and graphic design, their work includes murals, illustrations, exhibitions and installations. As an artistic collective, they question their style in every project, believing firmly that the aesthetics, techniques, and materials used must never be unthinking or gratuitous - on the contrary, they must exist solely as a vessel to convey and amplify the work’s underlying message.
In their murals, they present works that are connected with the space around it, representing stories and facts of the local culture. Through this, they make visible the identity of the mural’s surroundings.
