Apparatu + Alex Trochut = "Skate Fails"
Generally, when the words "skateboard" and "art" are anywhere near each other, said statement is 9 times out of 10 referring to the deck's featured artwork. Nope, not in this case. In this collection, designed by Apparatu and Alex Trocut, the boards ARE the works of art. The 2 Spanish artists bent, broke, melted, and otherwise mangled actual skateboards. Then painted and plated (silver, gold, aluminum) them, placed and re-formed with some added pizazz. No word yet on when/where the "Skate Fails" collection will be showcased.
