Here is the Skateboard deck I’ve just painted for the Skateistan Benefit show and Art auction in Leeds, UK. January 26th, 2013. 6.30pm, £5 in.
There’s live music and my skateboard, along with other work from the likes of Drew Millward and Pogger will be on show and auctioned off for the charity.
Skateistan began in Afghanistan and have now branched out into Cambodia and Pakistan, as such I thought it fitting to represent their progress through the use of the Pakistani flag morphed into a skateboard wheel. Which to me, as a skateboarder represents progress and advancement.
Skateistan is a non-government funded organisation which began in Kabul, Afghanistan as a youth outreach programme providing educational and skateboarding classes, using skating as a tool to empower young people aged 5-18.
Over 50% of the students are streetworking children and nearly 40% of the students are girls. Alongside the Kabul base, there is now established centres in both Cambodia and Pakistan, with a second centre to be completed in Afghanistan imminently, in Mazar-e-Sharif.
