Thad Kellstadt is a Milwaukee-based artist, poet and musician. About this piece, he writes, “As skateboarding and BMX biking gained popularity, the subcultures that surrounded them gained exposure. Picking up on the larger conflict that exists between two worlds whenever popular entertainment tries to synthesize with underground culture, ‘Thrashed’ reclaims the footage, confusing it through a psychedelic lens in an attempt to distill some of the original spirit.”
