Michelangelo painted ceilings. Diego Rivera painted walls. Today, great artists are drawn to skateboards as both canvas and muse, another outlet for the creativity that has made skateboarding an influential part of today's pop culture. Concrete to Canvas brings together an impressive variety of skateboard art and features the hottest artists in the medium. Commentary on each artist, examples of his or her work, and quotes let graffiti artists, illustrators, graphic designers--and skateboarders --enter this daring world of movement, color, and form. Whether the art is on the board itself, or created on decks, canvas, computers, or on the streets, it's part of a streetwise revolution in art.
