erik vs the wall

on february 18th this year, erik lundquist painted a mural on the graffiti wall at homewood skate park. using white house paint and a six cans of black spray paint, he finished the whole thing in about five hours. unfortunately, it was covered pretty quickly, surviving as a backdrop to the mini ramp for only a couple days.

i shot a bit of 16mm film of the process, and edited it down into a short film for erik's website. i took a couple photos too; check them out below.

erik lundquist art

if you have some spare cash, click on the shop and pick up some of his work.


do yourself a favor and watch this video! made by adam mills, tucker phillips, and andrew smith. this is a really great one; only chicago footage, awesome skating, killer soundtrack, and backed bunch of great humans. check out their blog in the links section.
