If you’ve not read our recent interview with Sem Rubio discussing his new Mark Gonzales Rizzoli book, please head here and check it out.
Mark needs no introduction to most skateboarders, he’s single-handedly responsible for a huge amount of skateboarding’s progression as it blew out of the Californian skateparks of the mid-80s and took hold in the streets. Mark, alongside his friend Natas Kaupas literally invented so much during the late 80s and early 90s period that their contribution can simply never be matched.
They not only pioneered new tricks but extended the style and cultural breadth of skateboarding around the world. But as Sem describes in his interview with us, Mark’s immense past has been documented many times and this new book show's Mark still pushing boundaries in, as ever, his own way. Whether this is directly through skateboarding or as a renown artist in his own right.
Sem Rubio is a Spanish photographer who has travelled with Mark around the world, largely through his work with adidas Skateboarding. Alongside Sem’s photography are words from some of Marks notable friends and fans, giving the book a wealth of information around Mark’s character and breaking his relationship to skateboarding that has lasted so many years already and with no end in sight.
