Agents Provocateurs : 100 Subversive Skateboard Graphics
by Seb Carayol




Overview -
Skateboard graphics took a quantum leap in offensive potential after the sport was reborn aesthetically and otherwise in the '90s. Artists like Marc McKee, Todd Francis, Mike Hill, Michael Sieben, Ed Templeton, Sean Cliver, Moish Brenman, Fos, Ben Horton, Alyasha Owerka-Moore, Eli Morgan Gesner, Jeremy Fish, Brice Raysseguier, Johnny Mojo Munnerlyn, Alex Kramer, Todd Bratrud, Winston Tseng and others brought dark humor and politically incorrect topics to the forefront of their work. These artists intended not just to decorate and sell skateboards, but also to raise serious issues and skewer values, deliberately evoking reactions from viewers. Agents Provocateurs asks new questions of this boundary-pushing artistic genre and its place over the years. Did it save skateboarding? Is it still possible to address such controversial topics twenty years later What's left once all the envelopes have been pushed? These 100 boards and the artists behind them will form a clearer picture.
