DIY National Skateboard Festival: Sports and Art
Build Ramps Not Walls, in collaboration with Puerto Café and Dolor Local (a community of illustrators), featured their first fundraising to create artistic murals for the skateboard park of Unidad Deportiva Agustín Flores Contreras, where the First National DIY Skateboard Festival, will take place from December 6th to 8th 2019.
Puerto Café (Morelos 540, El Centro) held this event that started at 7:00pm and had an active participation of skaters, illustrators, residents and visitors interested in this sport and the arts, who supported this cause with the purchase of food and drinks. The proceedings will be used for acquiring the needed materials to achieve this goal.
Besides promoting this sport, one of the main purpose of this collective is to beautify the public areas through diverse artworks made by talented illustrators, like:
· David Rocha, muralist and illustrator from Guadalajara.
· Gibrán Turón, member of Dolor Local.
· José Fabián Estrada, better known as Maldito Perrito, illustrator of older versions of SEP’s books.
· Niño Feo, internationally known by his stickers.
New works on the skate park are scheduled to begin on November 30th and will be completed by December 5th, 2019.
