Electric Coffin Marginal Way Benefit in Seattle

Electric Coffin opened the doors to a new space in Seattle’s 1020 Building last night, hosting artists and skaters for a Marginal Way art show benefit. Marginal Way is a successful DIY skatepark project. Previously the park’s location was public property in disrepair and skaters took it upon themselves to clean it up. With the support of local businesses and Seattle’s Department of Transportation, DIY construction began in 2004. It’s now a legal skatepark. Respect.

Local artists donated pieces for auction – most of them painted on slabs of griptape – with local favorite Matt Savage selling early before my arrival. Again. His pieces continue to escape me; next time he’s showing I’ll be there when the doors creak open. His work in intense, saturated and imperfect with honesty. Small deviations by a rushed hand and rough surface define his unique and truthful style. [artwork below by Matt Savage]
