Cultural Canons and Kickflips

Cultural Canons and Kickflips, was an art exhibition and series of events run by Re:ply Skateboards over three consecutive weeks. A fundraiser for Govanhill Baths in Glasgow. It revolved around art and music from the skateboard community of Glasgow.

The events were a huge success with two packed nights and regular visitors across the two weeks. Raising money for Govan Hill baths and helping to promote Re:ply as an innovative environmentally aware company.

The posters were inspired by classic modernist designs to push the visual language towards that of an art exhibition as opposed to a clich├ęd ‘skate’ aesthetic. They were riso-printed and then in the spirit of Re:ply skateboard’s use and reuse ethos, each consecutive event was screen printed (DIY in a garden shed) onto the original poster.
