This handcrafted piece of skateboard art; created by artist Phil Davison; consists of a 33"x8.5" skateboard deck, hand drilled with 531 1.5mm holes and is embroidered with 67 feet of embroidery thread, completed with hand-made miniture silver barbed wire to create this tattoo art inspired 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.
The Sacred Heart Skateboard Deck is a unique one off piece, by Phil Davison; with the offical Urban Cross Stitch seal, applied to the top deck side; and this stunning art work will appeal to any tattoo afficionado and skateboard enthusiast.
Phil is currently also represented by Fuchs Projects Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC.
