San Francisco’s FFDG is hosting Confessions of an Old Dirty Skateboarder, a solo art show featuring the work of San Francisco-based graffiti artist, illustrator and tattooist Mike Giant. The show will feature drawings by Giant as well as his “personal collection of skateboards he illustrated the graphics for, including boards from his early career”. The opening reception is Friday July 20, 2012 from 7 PM to 10 PM and the show runs through August 12, 2012.
“I’m a product of my generation. I grew up through the 80s and was drawn to the punk rock and hip-hop cultures simultaneously”, Giant said in a recent interview. “I threw myself in headfirst. A lot of those things were about personal expression, and also an anti-establishment attitude like, “We don’t need you, we have our own thing.” That’s the backbone of who I am to this day”.
