Art on Wheels: Spectacular Skateboarding Tricks

A virtuoso performance in an abandoned Spanish train station

Filmmaker Juan Rayos follows Kilian Martin as he skateboards through an abandoned station in his hometown of Madrid. Watch as the camera captures Martin’s talent and alternative style as he flips through various tricks. The soft light from the station’s high-vaulted windows gives the video an almost heavenly feel.
