Skateboarding is a Crime

A by-law passed by the City of Cape town has made skateboarding illegal on any public road, though very little is being done to build skateparks in and around the city.

"Skateboarding is a Crime" is an exhibition of illustrations by Gerhard Human in collaboration with Woodies Ramps.
12 unique illustrations will be for sale at a ridiculously low price. Hand printed in edition of 30, numbered and signed.
ALL PROCEEDS will go to the development of skateparks in South Africa.

The exhibition opens on Thursday, 26 April at Clarke's Bar and Dining Room and will run for a week after.

  1. Radical(I've always treated skating like it's illegal). Do you mind if I repost this on my blog and site?

  2. these are do we get hold of your prints if we don't live in Cape Town?

  3. Hi Jeanne, we'll definitely make a plan to get you one (or many) sent over if you like. We'll put up a page on my blog and over at Woodies Ramps after the exhibition ended for all the prints that are left. There is only 30 editions for each drawing. They'll be numbered and signed.

    Are you in South Africa or abroad?
