Skewville is most know for their wooden sneakers. Even 15 years ago, posters, stickers and stencils cluttered every street corner in NYC. So the need for a new media space gave birth to their sneaker mission, ” When dogs Fly." Dogs, kicks, grips, sneaks or whatever you want to call them.. as Kids they tossed their old sneakers over the local power lines when they got new ones. It was a symbol of change and a way to represent the hood. In 1999 they started making Wooden Dogs to continue their childhood mission. Since then over five thousands pairs have been silk screened, hand cut, drilled, laced, and then tossed all over the globe.
"The first pair of Skewville dogs were made in 1999 and were black low-top chucks. After 15 years and over 50 different editions, We decided to bring back the classic black and white low top editions. Also added in this collector's set is the first time ever made, white low-top chucks. You decide which one to keep and which one to toss up." - Skewville

Skewville, formed in 1996, has been prolific in the street art scene way before it even became a scene. Most known for their silkscreen wooden sneakers that were tossed over thousands of telephone wires worldwide, Ad and twin brother Droo have now evolved into the gallery scene making paintings, prints and sculptures as well as elaborate installations.
While Ad, fully versed in all other skewville mediums, he solely tackles the painting aspect of the Skewville repertoire, while Droo is the master of his own 3D simplicity. Both artist often have different processes , but their final pieces always resonates that same Skewville Flavor.
