The exhibition, which runs from 22-26 April, is the first of a new venture by Clown Skateboards, called Clown Collectibles, which will produce one-off short run items for sale at normal prices. Decks will be available to buy in skate shops for £50 from May. Clown Skateboards is five years old this year and has always had close associations with artists.
