Skateboarding Artists You Should Be Following on Instagram

Skateboarding, being the inherently creative pursuit that it is, naturally attracts some incredibly talented and innovative minds – Spike Jonze, Rodney Mullen, Brian Lotti to name but a few.

You’re likely to find more creative nous at your local skatepark than in most of the advertising/creative agencies that churn out tedious bullshit for ridiculous amounts of money. With this in mind we’ve pulled together a varied selection of some of our favourites for you to check out, should you not already be familiar.

Leon Washere is someone we’ve come across more recently, creating colourful animations of tricks from current and classic videos.

Cosme

✏️ SPIRIT QUEST’s earworms: This transition was in the trailer so I suppose that everybody has already seen it. Jimmy Lannon’s part was the one I spent more time working on. Still cannot take that song out of my head… whole soundtrack is superb. @mandibleclaw & @jimmylannon #SpiritQuestVideo ???? out now!

Cosme is a personal favourite, not least for his work on Spirit Quest. Expect to find animations, skateboard graphcis, illustrations and more.

Pat O’Rourke

We thought it would make sense to include at least one photographer, given skateboarding’s connection to the art form. You could do worse than ChilliganIsland, AKA Pat O’Rourke,a mixture of his keen eyed snaps and some skateboarding too.
