Malaysian Brand QUIT is using Street Skating to Infiltrate the Art World

POSTEDBYPETER CASEY OATES

Skateboarding, from an outsider’s perspective, is rarely seen as an artform. Malaysian brand QUIT is using street skating to infiltrate the art world. Their aim? Challenge the viewer in defining what constitutes a piece of art, beyond the gallery walls. 

Their sculpture, dubbed “Wall Ride”, captures the stress and turbulence of a session at a particular spot. 

Skateboarders have an obsession with skating derelict or repurposed objects, so an old car door is a fitting canvas. Every attempted wall ride scrapes and forges its signature into the metal, in a similar way to brush strokes on a canvas. All this makes the process of skateboarding tangible. 

If you have the space (or happen to be missing a car door) the sculpture is up for grabs.
