ROA & Skateistan
    Friday, 22 March 2013 /// Written by Trippe

World traveling street artist ROA completed some board graphics for the nonprofit Skateistan who bring skateboarding to children in Afghanistan and Cambodia

"My purpose of my visit to Cambodia was an introduction to the Skateistan and also to the Sk8room project. It's a beautiful project because they help kids that don't have a lot of opportunities and let them be kids. I skateboarded as a kid. I grew up in the 80's so skateboarding for me was one of the most important things as a teenager and it came together for me with graffiti and hip-hop culture. So it was really important and you see now it still influences me. Early Skateboard graphics of Powell and Santa Cruz had such a special meaning for me as a teenager to begin with and it is still a big part of my life.” - ROA
