.002 / "THE UNVARNISHED" SKATEBOARD "CHLOE" INSPIRED BY LARRY CLARK'S 'KIDS'

$149.95

Step into the visceral echoes of 1995, where "The Unvarnished Deck Collection inspired by Larry Clark's 1995 cult-classic 'Kids'" by Wanton Skateboards and Fine Art, redefines the essence of skateboarding. This array of decks, forged from rare art and 100% handmade Canadian Maple, transcends mere transportation—they are stark testaments to the gritty and relentless rebellion that Larry Clark so vividly captured. Each board is not just wood and wheels—it's an artifact chronicling youth's raw, unfettered lives, grappling with the suffocating embrace of burgeoning commercialism.

Cultural Canvas and Relic of Defiance: These decks echo the defiant leaps and asphalt kisses of an unchecked youth, embodying a relentless pursuit against the predictable, the safe, the mundane. Beneath the frayed grip tape and the battle-worn trucks pulses the raw, untempered spirit of '95—a canvas splattered with the chaos of freedom. Each line, each scuff, whispers of a time when youth dared to skate against the grain, a reflection of the untamed ethos of "Kids." Clark's film unfolds in stark, unapologetic slices of reality—scenes steeped in the smoke of controversy and the grit of urban survival, challenging the viewer with its bold, raw portrayal of adolescence.

Crafted with Rebellious Precision: Sculpted from the finest grains of rebellion, our decks do not merely survive the urban strife—they narrate the weight of expression that bore down on those asphalt canvases. They ride not just on concrete but through the annals of memories, their worn graphics cartography of resistance, defiantly mapping a stand against the polished norms of a world veering dangerously toward the blandishments of a new, commercial order.

Exclusivity in the Throes of Rebellion: Limited to just 48 pieces, each deck is a fragment of history, a brushstroke in the gritty portrait of past youth. It's a symbol of owning something not merely rare but raw and honest—an invitation to those who value the scars of authenticity over the unblemished sheen of the mass-produced.

Echoes of Cinematic Grit: More than traversing, each deck resonates with the shadows cast by the meteoric rise of streetwear in the 90s. Its aggressive design and tactile textures mirror the harsh realities of Clark's vision, offering not just a ride but a return to the stark, unapologetic streets of New York. Here, each scratch is a verse; each turns a stanza of a more extraordinary poem—etched not on paper but on pavement, where the story of urban youth unfolds in cynical, biting clarity.

"The Unvarnished Deck Collection inspired by Larry Clark's 'Kids'" by Wanton Skateboards and Fine Art is more than a series of skateboards; it is a conduit to a time of raw passion and artistic rebellion. To own one of these decks is to ride not just on streets but through the essence of an era unvarnished and unforgettable, where every push forward is a stroke against the fabric of a quickly fading memory. Embrace this collection, and let each ride be a poignant reminder of the unyielding spirit of those who once made the city their defiant canvas.
