  • These are really interesting paintings. They look like plasticine mouldings. It’s really cool to see something different. They appear to be inspired by children’s toys or just children in general. The first and last paintings are sort of child-like and almost Picasso-esk. I love the simplicity of the idea but the detail of the paint to give such an effect.

  • hehe

    great stuff!!!

  • Dana

    I just saw this work at VOLTA NY shown by the Steven Zevitas Gallery— they are absolutely beautiful in person. They’re huge and quite haunting.

  • Awkward in such a dope way.

  • Pamela

    The first and the last are my favorites, amazing colors!!

  • Erica

  • Clarice

“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!
