Munich, Germany - 18th May 2010 - It's confirmed! The Skeleton Artist
Group will exhibit at AMSTEL SURFILMFESTIBAL 2010. Now in its eight
year, this successful film, art and music festival will once again
bring the Basque town of Donostia (aka San Sebastian) to life from
June 4-13, 2010.
The Skeleton Artist Group is composed of Luis de Dios, Xandi
Kreuzeder and Joćo Parrinha. Over the years, these three friends have
worked both individually and collectively in an effort to raise
environmental awareness through the medium of green art, and from the
perspective of those that rely on Mother Nature to feed their passion
for sport.

Working exclusively with flotsam and jetsam, and for that matter any
other beach trash they come across, the artists create works for
Skeleton Sea that express a strong message based around their shared
cause of "keeping the oceans clean!"
The AMSTEL SURFILMFESTIBAL 2010 will welcome no fewer than 20
different art pieces and installations created by the Skeleton Artist
Group, including a number of new and significant works.

Hinting at the ever-growing problem of overfishing in our oceans, a
new work entitled 'Tuna' promises to create a real buzz in the
fishing port of Donostia, constructed as it is from nothing but rusty
old tuna tin cans. Another piece that will go on show is (S)Hell Gas
Station. Underlining the enormous environmental threat posed by oil
companies, this particular piece is especially poignant given the
ongoing natural disaster that continues to cast a dark shadow over
the Gulf of Mexico.

The AMSTEL SURFILMFESTIBAL 2010 will provide the Skeleton Artist
Group with an opportunity to present their work and view of the world
to an even bigger and more diverse audience. The trio of artists
looks forward to welcoming you to the exhibition's temporary and very
fitting home in Donostia: the AQUARIUM.
