In the early sixties, Andy Warhol created many works depicting consumer products, Hollywood stars, and a highly publicized series illustrating death and disaster in American society. As one of the most recognized faces in contemporary art, it seemed obvious for us to try and perpetuate Andy Warhol’s vision through our production. That’s why we recently collaborated with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to produce a series of Andy’s most iconic works.
The Skateroom is a social entrepreneurship that collaborates with renowned contemporary artists to produce iconic works of art on skateboards at accessible prices. Their sales directly support NGO's such as Skateistan, in their efforts to build skateparks and schools across Afghanistan, Cambodia, South Africa and plan to build many more in the coming future, empowering youth through skating, art and education. The editions are sold via selected museums globally, some art galleries and eventually edgy concept and design stores. The Skateroom donate up to 20% of their turnover to independent NGO’s (mostly to Skateistan), they also want to be an example of a fair and equitable company: they produce from certified sustainable forest in Canada and compensate yearly all of our carbon (CO2) emissions. They are therefore hoping to work with retailers that understand and respect such values.
