UK skateboard brand and revered poet John Cooper Clarke collaborate...

To coincide with the release of his autobiography 'I Wanna Be Yours', the legendary poet and spoken word artist John Cooper Clarke has collaborated with UK skateboard brand Lost Art.

Working with long time Lost Art collaborator, illustrator and skateboarder Sketch Stance.

The collection aims to celebrate the DIY punk ethos that runs through both skateboarding and John's work, opening up both protagonists to new audiences.

Drawing inspiration from the ever so timely 'Evidently Chickentown' poem subject matter, one of John's most famous poems - the lyrics have been reinterpreted to create graphic themes that aptly reflect the current climate.

To capture the launch for posterity, Lost Art have also released a video documenting the printing process in Liverpool and skate session on the streets of Salford in honour of John's heritage.

Watch John and Lost Art soujorn through the streets of Liverpool and his hometown Salford in the video below.

Tune in now and pick up the full collection here from the Lost Art webstore.
