Ben Horton | $lave


I haven’t been on a skateboard since I was 16 but that hasn’t caused me to stop CSS from sending me catalogues and me occasionally checking in to see what kind of art is going on decks these days. I stumbled across Ben Horton, who owns $lave Skateboards, and does (all?) of the artwork that shows up on their decks. Looking into it more I found out he’s got many non-board pieces. While there’s something about the art on a skateboard getting smudged and scraped across itself that just does it for me, it’s good to see some of that spirit translated into more traditional and permanent pieces.
