San Francisco, CA — FFDG recently presented San Francisco based artist Mike Giant’s first highly anticipated solo show entitled “Confessions of an Old Dirty Skateboarder” featuring a wide assemblage of recent drawings and also a rare opportunity to view Giant’s personal collection of skateboards he illustrated the graphics for, including boards from his early career. If you missed out on this show, check out the below images for a quick recap of what went down at the opening night.
“I’m a product of my generation. I grew up through the 80s and was drawn to the punk rock and hip-hop cultures simultaneously”. “I threw myself in headfirst. A lot of those things were about personal expression, and also an anti-establishment attitude like, “We don’t need you, we have our own thing.” That’s the backbone of who I am to this day”. – Mike Giant
