Should just change it to Art Bars Apreesh.

Very overlooked video I believe. Wish Jon West's part was on youtube.... didn't really look that hard though

Art Bars, amazing. I've always had a love for this video for many reasons.  Ethan Fowler and Kris Markovich had amazing parts, not to mention a young Strubing and Salazar. When the video came out I thought it was the best video I had ever seen. Skate videos at the time seemed hard for me to relate to, there were a lot of parts with trick after trick handrail bangers and big gaps. Art Bars was different, the skating was more creative and fluid, there were unique tricks like fs hurricanes and no complies, at least they seemed pretty exotic to me at the time. And Markovitch just had the perfect part to end the video.

100% agree that this should be an all around art bars apreesh. This video has just always stood out to me, it wasn't the first foundation video I saw but it was the first and the last foundation video that just felt special to me. I know that sounds kinda lame but the just the diversity of the team but how well it flowed is awesome. All the super 8 and cool colors and scary dolls and Lego men made it pretty original. The soundtrack is fucking awesome too! My favorite part in this video is Shimizu's and it may be his best part. Strubings part really stands out to me as well and remains my favorite strubing part. Jon wests part is really rad too and just the fact that you can see what a big role he played in helping edit the video is just rad. I guess Josh beagle did all of the other foundation videos but Jon helped with this one and you really see a huge difference. Everyone had sick parts and this video remains one of my favorite videos of all time. I put it up there with genesis, mouse, welcome to he'll etc. Awesome to see so many people so psyched on it!

This is an awesome video. I used to watch this shit everyday before skating when it came out. Fowler's crooked on that huge ledge where he lands in the stairs is insane. I think someone here had it as an avatar. I am popping this video in right now.

has he had the worst run of sponsorship luck or is he a handful?

Damn, so good. Kris has never had a bad part. Every part has style and of course speed. I'd like to see him
 round up his career on Black Label Legends Division. He would be a perfect fit on the rebooted Arcade also.

There was a pretty recent Lowcard interview with him, he had some good photos in it too. He seems to be pretty psyched with Given skateboards.   It does kind of seen like he's had some bad luck with sponsors, and I think he had trouble coming back from his knee injury.

this video photosynthesis, and welcome to hell were my favorite videos when i first started skating. jon west's part was insane (wheelbite grind, what did he do on that crazy red rail? wasn't it a fs feeble, fs smith and smith no comply or something?). for some reason i always liked that there was a lot of skating during the fall in it too. did anyone ever skip past all the credits and watch the really short horror movie at the end? it wasn't great but i thought it was cool idea.

I don't think I actually realized what a short period of time Markovich was on foundation for, he was on element when Art bars stated filming and had started Hollywood before it was even wrapped up?

I remember him talking about his sponsor jumps a little in an interview a few years ago, Thrasher I think? I never got the impression he was to much of a dick to anyone, just restless I guess mixed up with a bit of bad luck.

i used to know him before he got sponsored and moved to cali, and he was really amazing during that time, but i can't say his part has aged well.  i hung out with him when he first got on foundation and it seemed like he hated skateboarding.  haven't really talked to him since.

I did that same shit. They had tons of shit about art bars. One thing that also comes to mind was a little video of Kritian Svitak being welcomed to black label with lucero.

that tre flip he did off that curb kicker on an 'Fight Fire With Fire' Prime (1994) always stuck out for me out of all the shit he has done, i find that the best. 3:30

Kris is fucking awesome. I hope for the best with him and Given, it's not huge, (yet?) but the team is amazing. Also, did he hit his face on the ledge at like 2:30? I never noticed that before.

i remember in a slap article last year markovich was getting shoes from fallen........he'd be a good fit for the team and should be bumped up to pro shoe status, again! markovich/thomas legend combo is a heavy package of skateboarding destruction.

i hope "given" really takes off, i wanna see another full part.

fs smith. i remember watching that on vhs and rewinding that trick so many times
