From his OBEY sticker campaign to Barack Obama’s Hope poster; Shepard Fairey has proved himself as a maverick in the street art world. What started for Fairey as a mere sticker has since evolved into an international campaign creating further popularization to the street art culture. His driving motivation is seen worldwide through murals and museums, and in this own words, “the real message behind all my work is ‘question everything’.”

Los Angeles based artist Risk, has unmistakable artist ability. His unique graffiti style has gained notoriety and paved a new way for the street art movement. Risk is a graffiti originator and has successfully crossed over to a gallery artist as well. His most current project is with Heal The Bay, he is working on a mural that covers an entire two story house.

Also on exhibition are Chad Muska, Bam Margera, Steve Caballero, Ray Flores, Lance Mountain and Steve Olson; all legends in the skateboarding community with prolific skateboarding careers. They have joined the ranks of the Sk8Art St. scene to create original pieces of artwork.

Sk8Art St. will showcase these artists’ talents in a unique and visually stimulating way. Come be inspired and enjoy an innovative atmosphere at Suede Studios, where any patron of art would find themselves at home.
