Street Art and Skateboarding – What’s not to like?
Presented by The SK8room, here is a brand new video of Street Artist ROA. Twenty percent of all sales that come from this campaign will be donated to Skateistan, a not-for-profit that teaches empowerment through skateboarding to children in impoverished countries like Afghanistan and Cambodia.

MOMO and El Tono Snap Your Attention in France
Experimenting a little with a revolutionary new painting contraption, here are two of the modern minimalists on the Street Art scene today demonstrating how to paint with a snap line in Besançon.
Old Norse: Conor Harrington’s trip to Vardo, Norway
A short poetic film by Andrew Telling documenting Conor Harrington’s trip to Vardø, Norway, with some incidental paintings thrown in to remind you why you started watching. The sumptous, stunning score by Lucinda Chua leads your mind into a Nordic trance.
Shepard Fairey “Sound and Vision”
In London for the music inspired show at Stolen Space, Street Artist Shepard Fairey introduces you to some of his influences in music and to Z-Trip, the living breathing musical component of the installation. Also, he shipped a thousand of his own records to the show. Dude. Also, a few street slaps at the end.
