Southbank standing strong

In early March 2013, The Southbank Centre unveiled designs for a £120 million redevelopment of its Festival Wing that revealed their plan to transform the iconic Southbank undercroft skate park into retail units. The Southbank Centre proposed to relocate the revered and popular skate park further down the river, beneath the Hungerford Bridge and build a new skate facility there.

However, the Southbank undercroft is a treasured space, known as the birthplace of British skateboarding and has been home to skateboarders, BMX riders and graffiti artists for the last 40 years.

Gimme The Funk – Drewfunk

Drewfunk is a rare breed, a spiritually-aware artist, tuned into balance and beliefs. His Eastern origins and upbringing have met with a Western fusion in his relocation to Australia. We took a minute to talk to him about his personal experiences of life across the two continents, love, balance and laughter…

There’s a big traditional Asian art aspect to a lot of your work, where has this come from?

It originally came from me trying to find myself in graffiti lettering, but after growing up as a Malaysian, coming into a Western-influenced society, I starting looking back into my Chinese roots.

Bei Badgirl – Kawaii As Fuck

Bei Badgirl is a real-life Asian fantasy. Her candy-cane artwork carries the curvy sexuality of Miss Van, or Fafi, with seedier sexual overtones – bondage features heavily, alongside candy cane colours and strange Pokémon-style creatures on leashes. She’s recently returned to Australia from shows in the UK, we caught up with her ahead of this year’s charity art event, Sidewayz, to talk about bad bitches and cute stuff.

What inspires you to make the art you do?

Is it too obvious to say my personal interests? Shortlist: Cartoons, bad bitches, female mythology, kawaii culture, the internet, ‘the girl condition, cute food, shiny stuff, etc…

SMC[3] – Son$ of Anarchy

Sydney-based artist, SMC[3] is kind of old-school. His head-spinning characters and artwork draw influence from skateboarding, anarchy and cartoons. We caught up with the mad bomber for a quick quiz, ahead of his entry into this year’s Sidewayz skate and snowboard art event…

Your art’s pretty tripped, what gives you the ideas for your characters?

I get a lot of influence from 60’s, 70’s & 80’s surf, skate & punk comics and art, the characters are mostly trippy, cartoony, monster-based funk and ooze.
