Avant Garde Diaries
Kilian Martin & Brett Novak - Electricity inside
Kilian Martin’s skating is poetry in motion. The inimitable California-based pro skater combines multiple athletic forms that have redefined street skating. His background in gymnastics has translated seamlessly to the skateboarding realm, offering a radical expression of shapes, moves, and other gravity-defying motions. His work is an homage to the form itself—all captured by friend and collaborator Brett Novak’s elegiac cinematography, as Kilian takes freestyle skateboarding into the twenty-first century with his artful and inspiring take on the sport.
