In pursuit of keeping the connection of creating and skateboarding align; Waxfeather was established in 2012 to document raw skateboarding film photography and embezzle itself in the almost extinct culture of print media.
Fully operated by local skateboarder / skate photographer Taufek Asmarak, Waxfeather features film photography by contributors from across the globe. In its quest to keep the passion alive and aims to knit the underground skateboarding community together, preserve its art and print culture in the impermanent digital world.
To commemorate its 5th printed issue, Waxfeather will be holding an official launch and photo exhibition, showcasing selected work from the likes of Richard Hart, Sam Roberts, Rafael Gonzalez, Shingo Goya, Dominic Palarchio and Taufek Asmarak. The exhibition lies in the central idea of bonding creative communities within the skateboarding culture – providing a platform, encouraging skateboarders to come forth, sharing and exchanging creative perspectives.
There will also be a premier of local Singapore skateboarder Khai Amrien’s full part (Blue Soul), together with artwork / photography from Kuala Lumpur’s notorious crew Quit KL presented by Tep Yorke.
Come and join us on the event opening which is on 4th June 2016 at The Substation Gallery.
