This handcrafted piece of skateboard art; created by artist Phil Davison; consists of a 33"x8.5" skateboard deck, hand drilled with 6714 1.5mm holes and is embroidered with 794 feet of embroidery thread, to create this stunning op-art design.
Created exclusively for the August 2014, Urban Cross Stitch "XXXSTITCH" show, it was exhibited for one night only in New York Citys' Con Atrist Gallery, in Manhattans Lower East Side.
Hailed as "the Banksy of the cross-stitching world" by Time Out NYC, (Issue 967), Phil is constantly pushing the boundaries of cross-stitch and experimenting with ever new and interesting materials and effects, transforming the art of cross-stitch into a truly modern graphic medium.
This unique piece has been authenticated as 1/1 by Phil Davison, with the offical Urban Cross Stitch seal, applied to the top deck side.
The Death or Glory Skateboard Deck is a true labour of love, by Phil, and this stunning art work is sure to make a statement in any Urbanite Home!
Phil is currently also represented by Fuchs Projects Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC.
