To celebrate the reopening of the museum, Tate Britain has collaborated with various creatives, in a project called “Recreate with Tate Britain”. To kick off the series, they’ve teamed up with London-based skateboarding company, Palace Skateboards.
Lev Tanju, the creative driving force behind the brand, has created a collection of decks inspired by some of Tate Britain’s archives. Tanju projected paintings by John Martin onto a series of sculptures, using the resulting photographs as skateboard graphics, as you can see from the short film below.
Leading figures from the worlds of cooking, fashion, poetry, film, photography, music and comedy have been asked to share their creative processes behind their work whist being inspired by the 500 years of British Art. So be sure to check out their website over the coming months to see how great British Art can be interpreted in new ways.
