Obsessed With These Hand-Carved Skate Decks from Mumbai

Peter Davis

Even though I haven't skated the streets of NYC in years, I obsessively collect boards, most of which come from Supreme, who collaborate on decks with artists like Terry Richardson, Damien Hirst and Larry Clark, to name a few. Skate decks make great wall decorations, especially these hand-carved masterpieces which are part of a project called "Final Cut" in which German curator Tobias Megerle enlisted twelve Mahim woodcarvers to produce a series of skateboards using traditional carving techniques from Mumbai, India. Although the functional skateboards can shred up the sidewalk, they are definitely better suited on your mantlepiece. If you're in Mumbai, they are now on display at The Loft.
