Some of the UK’s finest street artists have chipped in their time and materials to help raise money for a new skatepark in Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire.
Legends such as Will Barras, Mr Jago, China Mike and Inkie have joined forces with a team of fresh illustrators and artists like Matt Richards, Ben Allen, Olly Howe, Saki & Bitches, Peter Burke, Victoria Topping and Callum Eaton to donate artwork – mostly decorated skate decks – for an online auction via GalaBid. The bidding ends at midnight on Sunday, September 19.
The campaign was started by local resident Carl Jones, whose skater son, Idris, went to the Town Council to ask for a new skatepark, after the old ramps were demolished with no plans to replace. The new skatepark will be on the same site as the old ramps and will form part of a redevelopment of the whole Poulton Park site. The auction aims to bring the organisers closer to their target of building the new skatepark that Bradford on Avon deserves.
