Luminaries from the design, art, fashion and music worlds have produced customised skateboards for Inspired, an exhibition honouring the influence of skateboarding culture to be held at London’s Apart Gallery. Contributors have been given an identical skateboard and asked to make his or her ‘mark’ upon it. Boards on display – created by the likes of artist Emelie Salford (top) and video director Shynola (bottom) – will be on sale, with half the proceeds going to anti-racism organisation Love Music Hate Racism. Inspired runs for two weeks from 6 October.
