1. Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul is a beautiful and moving short film that follows the lives of two young skateboarders from Afghanistan who attend the Skateistan project. Juxtaposing the harsh reality of life in Kabul with the hopes and ambitions of the country’s children, the film is a touching ray of light from a country only ever in the news for all the wrong reasons.

  2. For their second edition, the on-line Sold Art gallery chose to publish a lithography enhanced by hand by Lek and Sowat. Both French artists stayed three days in the studio of URDLA in Villeurbanne in order to create this print named " Paper Trail ". The film tells the process of creation on 2 lithographic stones of 200 kilos each. Thanks to a mixture of 19th century know-how and contemporary art, of calame and roller, Lek and Sowat left a track on the tricky paper. The experiment is the heart of the work, nothing was planned or defined in advance. The mistakes become interesting, their movements are free.

    After printing, the artists paint over each copies, creating unique works of art. Available on http://www.soldart.com

    Pour leur seconde édition, la galerie d’art en ligne Sold Art a choisi d’éditer une lithographie rehaussée à la main par Lek & Sowat. Les deux artistes français sont restés trois jours dans l’atelier d’impression d'URDLA à Villeurbanne afin de créer cette estampe «Paper Trail». Ce film de quelques minutes retrace le processus de création sur 2 pierres lithographiques de 200 kilos chacune. Mélange de savoir faire du XIX ème siècle et d’art contemporain, de calame et de rouleau, Lek & Sowat en ont laissé une trace sur le papier coton. L’expérimentation est au coeur de l’oeuvre, rien n’était prévu ni défini à l’avance. L’erreur devient alors intéressante, leurs gestes sont libres.

    Après l’impression, les artistes ont peint sur chaque exemplaire. Disponible sur http://www.soldart.com

  4. I hope that this film is a healthy nudge for people to shake up their lives a little bit.
    Jed's radical choice to quit his job and ride his bike across the world is a perfect challenge to the rest of us to get out of the routine and make some scary decisions. If you're afraid of a decision ahead of you, you're probably on the right track. Choose it. !
