We need to talk about sex — Hilariously explicit Polar Skateboards artist Jacob Ovgren invites the LB Project into his studio in Malmö.

“Everybody loves sex,” explains Jacob Ovgren. “I guess I’m just a perverted guy.”

Drawing cocks on things has always been funny, and for Jacob Ovgren it’s become a career. The Swedish artist is one of the main graphic artists at European skate powerhouse Polar Skateboards and his solo work is killer too.

In this LB Project short, he invites us into his Malmö studio to explain why sex, gore and penises will never go out of style. Jacob is one of ten artists participating in the project, a transatlantic art initiative that aims to bind the skate community together and raise funds for the Harold Hunter Foundation and Skateistan.

“I always like to get shocked,” Jacob explains. “I’m like, ‘Woah, shit, they should really not be painting that, this is fucked up.’ There’s so much stuff that is just plain, it doesn’t say anything. It’s just the same bullshit.”
