Featured artist Arran Gregory states; ‘I feel it’s the ethos behind street skateboarding which carries with it the constant need to re appropriate what’s before you and apply your own vision- that’s like a catalyst for the creative mind.’
Southbank has been the beating heart of the London skate scene since 1973 and exists as the oldest continually skated spot in the world, frequented by people from across the UK and around the globe. It is a unique space where seasoned pros rub shoulders with local skate rats; a place where creative talent can be nurtured and allowed to thrive.
The title ‘426㎡’ takes its name from lost sections of Southbank long since hidden away from its skateboarding roots. Long Live Southbank has created a unique opportunity to breath new life into this hallowed ground; all 426㎡ of it. Artists from across the world who express themselves through different mediums and who all have a relationship with skateboarding, particularly Southbank, have contributed works to help raise the funds needed to open up historic sections of Southbank once again.
All proceeds from ‘426㎡’ will go straight to the fundraising pot and ensure Southbank continues to inspire future generations of creative individuals.
