The Garage Amsterdam is currently hosting a group exhibition called “8th Ply.” Curated by Sasha Bogojev, the presentation features sculptures and paintings made by artists who have a close connection with skateboarding culture. Participants include several of the most renowned visual artists such as Ed Templeton, James Jarvis, Jean Jullien, Adam Neate, Boris Tellegen, Parra, Josh Jeffer- son, Andrew Schoultz, and Jeffrey Cheung.

“Seven layers of maple wood, or 7-ply, is the core construction of the skateboard deck and the bedrock of this globally popular sport/lifestyle. In a year when skateboarding was going to debut as an official Olympic sport for the first time in history, 8th Ply is here to put a focus on another layer of this popular activity,” as per a statement by the gallery.

The artists on show work in a variety of mediums and adopt unique methods to express their creativity. Highlighted works include a painting by Jean Jullien portraying a surfer alone at sea, a work by Parra showing two minimalist figures inside a modern-looking space filled with bold geometric motifs and a colorful nude portrait by Jarvis spotlighting what appears to be a male figure laying on his stomach with colorful scrawling across his form.

In other news, Parra recently unveiled a collaborative rug edition called IRONICA with Case Studyo.
