Keepin Up With... Dave The Chimp

My First Skateable Sculpture
"Dad and I"

I am happy to announce the recent completion of my first skateable
sculpture, "Papa und Ich".

Commissioned by the Oxylane Art Foundation as part of the Berlin
International Skateboard Artist Residency (BISAR), this piece will be
on display in front of the Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2, Kreuzberg,
Berlin, until 31st October 2011. It will be on hand to greet visitors
to the BISAR exhibition "Do Not Think" which opens on Friday
September 9th at 7pm. More information on the exhibition can be found
- at bottom of post.☀

"Papa und Ich" is based on one of my simple "one line" drawings, and
joins the list of Berlin's DIY skate spots - 100% skater made!

Street art fans can see the sculpture being ridden by Brazilian Daniel
Marques, as well as other Kreuzberg art pieces, in the video - below.

Big thanks go out to Lennie Burmeister, Kerry, Wulf, Juppie, Mischief
Skateboards, Radio Skateboards, Search & Destroy, and the Kreuzberg
skaters that rolled up their sleeves to help feed their local scene
with more delicious concrete!
