Street Artist Proves Heaven Is A Half Pipe At Skateboarding’s Very Own Sistine Chapel

Welcome to the church of skateboarding

In a story that couldn’t shout CHRISTMAS any louder, unless the skateboarders were wearing tea towels on their heads and singing Away in a Manger, a skate graffiti crew in Spain have transformed a disused church into a skatepark. And it looks the bomb.

The ultimate Xmas DIY spot was the brainchild of the Church Brigade, who planned to crowdfund the project. Then a street artist from Madrid, Okuda San Miguel, read about the spot online and asked to get involved, he then took over the fundraising. He said the project was “like my personal Sistine Chapel.”
