SKATE ART - SOCIAL EVENT

I participated in a skatedeck contest about social problems nowadays, and my design was part of the selection.

The skates were manufactured and exhibited in Brisbane/Melbourne/Sydney and afterwards the decks were auctioned to raise money for donation.

In addition to this, I've been featured in Kaleido Press Issue 03 (Australian magazine), as part of Catalyst topic and creativity for social change.

 

The idea of this artwork is to show the hypocrisy or deceit nowadays in the world between the biggest nations. In this case talking about the imperial ambitions and how nations make us believe they want peace in the world even they made the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, but on the other hand most nations are increasing their military equipment and creating more and better nuclear weapons instead of achieving the disarmament as they should. Therefore they will be ready for any coming war. The background is made of different newspapers because I believe this is one the most commons ways of spreading the good/bad news around the world.
