Miya Ando's Metal Skateboard Art Show

Miya Ando's Shinobu [perserverance] Exhibition


Miya Ando is a metal-finishing artist who creates layered finishes on steel with a process she invented, utilizing fire, acid and automotive lacquer.

She has made large scale steel wall works and her series of hot-rolled steel skateboards, monotypes created by skateboarding on liquid graphite-coated paper.

The steel skateboards are an exact size/thickness replica of a traditional wood skateboard, hand finished with fire, acid, patina and automotive lacquer. Ando has also made a hot-rolled steel 36" x 48" x 72" skateboard ramp sculpture, a collaborative piece (ridden and etched by Shelter Serra). The sculpture has been etched by muriatic acid-coated skateboard wheels ridden on the ramp and hand finished by Ando. The following photos are of this ramp, how it was made, and the prints.
