World Skate Open Lima 2020: It’s just one month to go and we are glad to share with you the awesome artwork of Peruvian street artist Fiasco (Check HERE Fiasco's profile on Instagram).
Here we have two “chamanes”, or shamans, the ancient Peruvian “witch doctors” whose deep bond with nature can easily remind us the relationship skaters have with the wind, the sky and gravity.
Peru is a country with more than 5,000 years of history and these mystical modern skateboarders also carry some graphic elements of the cultures of the Peruvian territory. Where the Andes meet the Amazon Rainforest, where a culture called Awajún replicates the geometry of the Universe through the drawings in their crafts.
We are confident that OUR “chamanes” will lead us safely through this amazing event in Lima.
