Meet the skateboarder behind some of Anchorage’s most famous wall art | INDIE ALASKA

Since he was young, Ted Kim dedicated his life to skateboarding, spending almost every day and night perfecting his craft.

But at 25, a serious skateboarding injury left him feeling lost, and wondering if he would ever skate again.

It was then he turned to drawing as a way of healing. From there, a new passion blossomed, inspiring him to work with murals. Using paint, pencils and even sharpie.
