Livid Skate is more than just a skate brand. Since its inception it has grown as a community of skaters, artists, photographers, surfers and other rad humans. Artists and photographers, whose work feature on the skate decks, are given a platform to exhibit their work at the Livid Exhibitions that are held to coincide with the release of each new deck series. Livid Skate aims to push against ‘consumer culture’ by creating skateboards that are artisan-made - the rolling embodiment of handcrafted cool.
The new “Art Grind” series decks will be unveiled at the launch on the 22nd and have been hand-shaped locally in Perth. They are limited to 5 decks per artwork with a variety of single- and double-kick shapes. The original artwork and skateboards will be available for purchase at the launch, and online at www.lividskate.com.
