Domas is a skater and artist who lives in London
“I skate and create art pieces. I also work in a school with children on autism spectrum. I learn as much as I can and teach when appropriate.
Lately I’ve been discussing skateboarding and creativity with my friend Zin.
we opened an exhibition at Grosvenor Chapel on South Audley street in Mayfair together. It was fun.
We were thinking…is there any point to separate art from skateboarding and from personal creative work that you do? I think you can use both, instead of one or the other.
I think using both you can flow easy from one subject to the other to make the transition smoother from one subject to the other . Navigating through the sea and figuring out how you feel about something to make a decision. Now..how do you combine art, creativity, learning, skateboarding, work and a family, that’s a tough one.
I’m inspired by any skater made art. What inspires me are brands that are smart – the ones that can be distinct and also know what people want. Palace Skateboards and Lev have always been very inspiring, taking a piss out of themselves with Another Fucking Triangle logo. I like that.
The No Comply Network is great – helping skaters get recognised a little bit – and the community aspect is great! I think a joint event or a jam at SB would be good. Anything that helps great artists to be recognised for who they really are is great!
I’m also thinking of some new projects with SB, working with Paul Richards and as I’m enjoying my time assisting teachers with autistic kids – its is like another world – I’m looking to teach them skateboarding. I think it would be an awesome way to communicate with them! So I’ve got lots of projects planned which I hope wil give more value of life to the people who need it and those who want it.
