Artist: Andrew Scott
Message from the team:
“I’m Michael and I’m a student at Oasis Skateboard Factory. My brand is called Lone Wolf and I specialize in making custom design boards for riding. Lone Wolf exists to bring out your inner wolf.
The artist I worked with is named Andrew Scott, who is a professional artist working in oil painting and collage. He describes his art as strong, disorienting and pointless. Andrew’s advice to young artists is to always go with your gut, and if you’re blocked artistically, go look at other art for inspiration and continue making art.
For our collab board we decided to execute my brand concept using Andrew’s style. I pressed and woodworked the board and then Andrew took our idea and created a “wolf vs. wolf” collage, giving it the title, “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us…Lone Wolf!”
The Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) is an award-winning TDSB alternative high school program where at-risk youth earn credits and graduate by building and selling skateboards and running a small design business. For Oasis Skateboard Factory’s 10 year anniversary, students were partnered with professional artists to create a unique rolling work of art. From adding illustrations and paintings to creating sculptures from cut up decks, OSF students and their artist collaborators go beyond the skateboard form and into the realm of high art.
All boards on display will be displayed at CJ’s SKATEPARK from April 16th – May 9th and will be available for public auction on the online JBM auction site.
On May 9th, the online auction bids will transition to the live auction event at CJ’s SKATEPARK beginning at 7pm where there will be a cash bar serving wine and beer. Proceeds from the auction will go towards supporting OSF’s unique programming. Parking is free.
CJ’s SKATEPARK is proud to support such an amazing school!
