TAWCK - Skate Deck | Freestyle
This skate deck by New Zealand artist TAWCK is one of over 40 one-off original skatedecks that were designed by artists for Limn Gallery's first show of 2023 - FREESTYLE.
This one-of-a-kind original work has been produced using spray paint and acrylic on board.
Featuring over 50 talented artists from around New Zealand, FREESTYLE features a blend of original artwork on skateboard decks, sculptures, and a series of photographs by award winning photographer, Petra Leary.
This unique and dynamic showcase of creativity is a celebration of the intersection of skateboarding and art, two distinct forms of self-expression that have long been intertwined. FREESTYLE aims to highlight the unique ways in which artists have interpreted the relationship between these two forms of expression.
Each skatedeck in the show is a canvas for the artist to express their own unique style, techniques and perspectives, resulting in a diverse and eclectic collection of pieces.
Size: 210mm (W) x 800mm (H)
About The Artist:
Earnest ‘Tawck GBAK’ Bradley is an artist of Ngāpuhi and Samoan descent, born and raised in the Western suburbs of Auckland, New Zealand and now residing in Whangarei, New Zealand’s regional capital of the northern region. A conscious decision to pursue art full time saw Tawck flee to the UK in 2011 where he kickstarted his professional tattoo career in Bournemouth, England. He later returned to Whangarei in 2013 to set up Memory Lane Tattoo Studio (Winner of the 2017 Northland Creative Industries award and 2019 More FM Customer choice Business Service award) where he now resides as a Full Time Creative/Artist and Business Owner.
Following in the footsteps of his father, Tawck established a passion for art well before he took his first footsteps. Those early teachings and a lifetime of creative competitiveness with his younger brother Haser, have manifested into global endeavours and successful creative careers for the both of them.
Tawck’s current works are a reflection of years of exploration and his desire to speak a visual language that represents his past, present and culture. The manifesto of what we see today is a juxtaposition that is reflected in a way of Tā moko (Māori designs), typographic script/lettering digital animation and realism.
