Palace are invited to reimagine British art into a new range of skateboard decks

After the recent £45m redesign, London art gallery The Tate are working to reach out to an audience slightly younger and more diverse than usual. They've just linked up with Warp Records for a programme of installation and performance events involving creatives such as Hudson Mohawke, Rustie, Oneohtrix Point Never and Jeremy Deller - Palace Skateboards are also involved and they've gone and reinterpreted some incredible British art onto a new range of decks.

Palace's main man Lev Tanju points his VHS camera to the apocalyptic painting of 19th century romanticist John Martin, then projects that footage onto and through a nearby bust sculpture. Lev then seeks out various interesting details within the photographs of the projection, applying them to an entirely new and refreshing series of skateboard decks.
