Welsh artist has teamed up with the Cardiff skate shop for a series of limited skateboard decks
Cardiff-based artist Phil Morgan has teamed up with independent Cardiff skate shop Cardiff Skateboard Club (CSC) to create a series of limited skateboard decks.
Mr Morgan, who lives and works in Penarth, has provided artwork to countless Welsh institutions including Clwb Ifor Bach, Spillers Records, Hang Fire BBQ and even the Eisteddfod.
It’s not the first time his artwork has found its way onto a skateboard, as Morgan has supplied much of the artwork for Welsh skateboard brand, Crayon, as well as former skate shop of Cardiff, City Surf.
A skateboarder himself, Morgan is a highly respected performer within the skateboarding community. In 2018 he was commissioned to decorate the park for the Vans Park Series in California, which saw some of the best skaters from around the world compete for the crown.
Cardiff Skateboard Club is one of the newest additions to Church Street in Cardiff. The shop is upstairs at 13 Church Street, above the highly acclaimed Venetian bar and restaurant, Bacareto, which recently made it onto the list of Cardiff’s best wine bars.
The limited decks were unveiled on Friday (3/25) at an art exhibition hosted by the Cardiff Skateboard Club. The exhibition was for the release of the new photo-zine documenting Cardiff’s skateboarding scene, “Lords of Butetown II”, and featured the work of local photographer Reid Allen, alongside local artists Lloyd Houston, Lee “Beef” Bennett and Phil Morgan.
If you’re a fan of Phil Morgan’s artwork and fancy a reasonably priced piece, head over to the Cardiff Skateboard Club to grab one of the skateboards while you still can.
