Justin Strubing


Justin Strubing, hip ollie, London 2003.

From the best artshow I was ever involved in- The Side Effects of Urethane (#2). To quote the Transworld article from which this is pulled:

“Everyone’s artwork occupied the top floor of the disused Victorian school on Old St., but downstairs in the hall, where kids used to pick their noses during dull assemblies, there was some much more interactive artwork available; as seen here. This picture may be hard to figure out, but then so was the obstacle. In fact, no-one could figure it out enough to skate it, apart from Strubes, who ollied from one of its eighteen sides onto another of its eighteen sides. Everyone else skated around the edges of the room, on the lovely transitioned walls…”
