After its eye-opening 1st edition last summer; ON BOARD is back to display the work of 80 artists on 80 skateboards at the Marc Gosselin Studio-Gallery on Thursday, August 8, 2019.

ON BOARD

Curated by Bezo, Lélé O’S and Marc Gosselin, the team behind ON BOARD found and recycled 80 used or broken skateboards; each of which was given to a different artist before the event so that he or she could freely realize their own creative project. Painting or collage transformed the material into a unique work of art.

Bezo‘s brainchild, ON BOARD was made possible thanks to his collaboration with Marc Gosselin, owner of the studio-gallery that bears his name. Therefore, the exhibit mixes emerging artists with professional artists from the Montreal art scene. The result is a series of eclectic works arranged in such a way as to enhance each one of them.
