The Guatemalan artist Dario Escobar is an expert at reconfiguring items into something entirely distinct from their original concept, as witnessed by these reassembled skateboard sculptures. Interpretation is a precious ability; what is something to one individual is another thing entirely to someone else. It's the foundation upon which our individuality finds expression, the antithesis of universal applications and proclamations.
Varying degrees of deconstruction prevail throughout these models, ranging from a complete reassembling of a skateboard sculpture in order to form a amphibian-like model to a Mercedes-themed, blue deck. Artists like Dario Escobar prove that the only material they need to create something distinguished and impressive is literally any object they can find and their imagination.
Through these various skateboard sculptures we witness a disassembling of original intent and the expression and celebration of personal perception.
