Damien Van der Meer Draws Hip Hop on Skate Decks

If your interests somewhat align with ours – skating, graffiti and Beastie Boys – then likely you’ve already come across the artwork of Damien Van der Meer. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if @damovdm is your favourite cat on Instagram.

The Sydney based artist has carved a specialty out for himself by drawing hip-hop heroes on to skate decks, occasionally doing doubles and then meeting up with the artists in question to present them with the artwork. Particularly nice are the time-lapse videos he posts of his creations coming together.

Posca art at it’s absolute finest. We’ve embedded just a few of our favourites below, but make sure you follow him to stay on top of new works as they appear. And if you’re in to it you might also like checking out Maccy’s Hip Hop Skateboard Deck Collection which we posted about back in 2012.
