Two of my painted skate decks are in a group museum show at the Lyman Allyn Museum, New London CT.. Thanks to the ultra legit Wampum Skate shop, an aesthetically fused concept by skater and Montauk local, Lennon Ficalora. I have mixed feelings about the ongoing fad of artists that are not connected to skate culture designing decks for gallery shows, that's why Wampum resonates with truth. These decks were done last summer for the opening of the shop in the Hamptons, and were influenced heavily by todd solondz's movie poster for "Happiness" by Daniel Clowes. Try to stop by if you're in the hood!
