SNT4EVER by Marcos Lozano Cantillo
Inspiring levels of dedication is all which can spring to mind upon the mention of Marcos Lozano and the SNT4EVER crew, locals of the iconic skate spot of Sants, Barcelona since dawn who do not just happen to complete adhere to the typical in-universe skateboarding plaza culture and etiquette, but also really have completely re-appropriated the space — for nothing but the better — throughout the years; repurposing an otherwise typical urban, pedestrian boulevard into a birthplace of action and life. One simple look at their website or Instagram activity should be enough to tell the sincerity of their geographical passion and focus of interest, retracing not just the technical prowess and video documentation over the decades but as far back as the plaza’s edification, then gradually expansive media coverage.
The eventual aim and present reality of SNT4EVER as a collective is to raise awareness to the city council about the need to recover Plaça del Països Catalans as an architectural icon and world emblem for the practice of skateboarding.
One they will get to share and explain in full this year at Vladimir, for the time span of a photo exhibition at Fort Forno including photos by David Susko, Axel Serrat, Quel Dominguez and Roger Ferrero and the screening of a full documentary film edited by Viliyan Todorov at Circolo the next day. After the festival the exhibition is going to stay in Pula for two months at Valli cinema.
