Skateboarding has managed to cause ripples across the globe especially amongst the young population. Skateboards sell like hot cakes everywhere and the fascination doesn’t seem to end. But the more these pieces are sold, it adds on to the pile of broken and thrown away boards. People get tempted to buy new and better designs which mean the old boards get a place at the junkyard adding on to the already increasing heaps of waste. But no more brooding over the skateboards being thrown away as the Reskate project is here to pump life into the worn out boards that too in style.
Each board after being rescuing is flipped into a beautifully carved artwork by a group of enthusiastic and nature loving artists under the name Nube. They have given a new life and meaning to recycling products with their creativity and ingeniousness. To bring their idea to life, old and worn skateboards were taken and distributed amongst a number of artists who exploded them with their artistic bent of mind. The end result was absolutely breathtaking and was raining with art.
These mini longboards that have been given an all new recycled life, look like a painting with all the details intact. These delicate pieces of art will force you to think twice before throwing away your skateboards. It will enlighten you with the fact that nothing is old or worn out and art can be squeezed out of anything. So, if you have your eyes fixed on a brand new skateboard that will take place of the one you already own then this concept will force you to give it a second thought.
Who said restored products can’t look stunning? The absolutely brilliant green idea and skateboard concept will be showcased at the Pantocrator Gallery in Berlin from the 22th-30th of May. If you are in Berlin do pay a visit and show how much you love nature and green innovations.
