Paris is currently playing host to one of the biggest skateboard art shows the world has ever seen called Public Domaine. Skateboarder Magazine‘s Jonathan Mehring was there to check out the mass of skate inspired installations, activations and art pieces on display whilst no doubt an epic amount of fun at the same time. Below is a bunch of artists worth looking up and words from the man himself.

Cheers to Jonathan Mehring for the following images:


























Empire Ave gave the heads up on the background which came from Pierre-André Senizergues, former pro skateboarder and owner of etnies, who hand-picked three creative minds from the brand’s history – Gil Le Bon Delapointe, Mike Manzoori and Yogi Proctor – to create compelling concepts that demonstrate what living, moving and thinking could look like in the future.

Definitely a must see if you’re skating through Paris in the next month.
