Skateboarding has produced its fair share of creative geniuses throughout its history. With the introduction of his latest art collection titled “All a Tremulous Heart Requires,” Blondey McCoy continues to prove that he is this generation’s embodiment of all that came before him. Whether it’s his skateboarding for Palace, fashion with his Thames London brand and signing to Kate Moss’s modeling agency, or his commissioned art work for brands including Burberry, Blondey has been firing on all cylinders for years now.
His latest offering is a collection of four paintings that were commissioned by biannual fashion magazine Arena Homme +. The pieces are based on a performance by The Smiths at Eldorado Club in Paris in 1984 where Johnny Marr famously took off his guitar and danced with Morrissey on stage.
Blondey explains his process—which includes laser cut pieces of acrylic laid over iPhone photos taken at a recent Morrissey show in Aberdeen—in this new video that he released via his personal YouTube channel.
Blondey’s latest work will be available for public viewing at St Martin-in-the-Fields in London on Friday, April 20.
