Jean-Michel Basquiat w/ The Skateroom – Skull – triptych of skateboard decks

465.00 excl. VAT

The Skateroom has teamed up with the estate of the late American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat to produce an edition of skateboards carrying some of the artist’s iconic paintings from the early eighties. Past and Contemporary street culture come full circle through this collaboration.
The Skaterooms Social Impact donate up to 30% of every sale to an NGO dedicated to moving humanity forward. The % given to support social projects depends on various factors among which the edition size, the price, the retailer’s margin, the royalites paid to the artists and foundations. Since the start of their project, they’re given more than $500,000+ to support social projects empowering at-risk youth around the world.

This iconic visual is an untitled piece originally presented at Basquiat’s debut solo exhibition in New York City. Skull, as it came to be known, features a deconstructed figure that plays heavily on the contrast between inner and outer elements – a suggested dichotomy prominent in many of Basquiat’s works. Though the piece seems easy to understand at first glance, a deeper look leaves us wondering what message the mythical artist truly wanted to deliver.
