A dynamic collective working and living in London whose sole purpose is to explore and promote the symbiotic relationship between skateboarding and art/photography/design/architecture. The group includes artists, graphic and product designers, photographers, architects, filmmakers, writers, and journalists.
Our main core of content in the first three shows, ‘The Side Effects of Urethane’, ‘A Surface In Between’, and ‘Moving Units’ was working from artists that reflect the ethos of ‘The Side Effects of Urethane’, and therefore are riders and artists from the skateboard community around the world, but mainly based in the UK.
All projects ‘The Side Effects of Urethane’ explore the idea of skateboarding as a kind of line drawing in urban space; exploring the paths traversed by skaters from point to point, surface to surface, the creation of complex patterns and gestures over the surface of the urban canvas.
