etnies and Color Magazine asked skaters to shoot a photo of themselves from their own rolling perspective. Over 200 portraits have been collected from skaters across Canada, the United States and as far as Japan, including etnies' own Mikey Taylor. With the help of Fourstar Clothing, a selection of these self-portraits of pro skateboarders, artists, and other talented individuals have been composed into an exhibition in celebration of skateboarding.
The show has been broken into a three-part art crawl (or roll) traveling across the country during the next six months from Vancouver (BC) to Montreal (QC) with stops in Winnipeg (MB), Calgary (AB) and Toronto (ON). Opening receptions in each of these cities take place in separate spaces at different times. Attendees are encouraged to take their cruiser boards out from under their beds or wherever they’ve been stored all winter and celebrate the freedom of skateboarding and embrace the roll from spot to spot.
