Don’t judge a book by its cover. Nor that of an artist and their threads. Step up the strictly all-black everything, black-metal listening, tatted and hooded Parisian graffiti legend Ilk, whose vivid works juxtaposes sharply against his exterior influences. In our exclusive film with Converse One Star, he teams up with fellow artists Keno and Horfee to demonstrate there’s more to everything than meets the eye.
If you are in to both painting and skating this is a nice video when they combine them in Lisbon’s abandoned places. Ilk from Paris paints a couple of walls while Remy Taveira, Jerome Campbell and Javier Mendizabal doing some tricks!
