    I dont know what this is… But its interesting to look at. Thats all I can say. It reminds me of tin-foil. It reminds me of cellophane. Idk, it catches your attention.. Once your looking, you get stuck, because its beautiful.. But, you dont understand.. WHY.. or WHAT!


  • Yonas

    Looks like Cesar art, with its compress cars…

  • I shared these paintings with others explaining them as light reflections on foil. They had different views, and disagreed with me. So whatever it is, I think they’re very interesting!

    • yes they are oil paintings based on arrangements of foil and paper

  • Terrific!

  • The patience..!

  • it’s either foil or terminator. but you’re right whatever it is i like it!

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
