This limited edition is based on Ai Weiwei’s provocative artwork that was presented during a controversial art exhibition “Fuck Off” which ran alongside the Third Shanghai Biennale in 2000. Ai Weiwei is a Chinese contemporary artist and activist who resides and works in both Berlin and Beijing. He studied animation at the Beijing Film Academy, then studied art in New York in the early 80’s. Upon returning to China a decade later, Ai Weiwei advocated for experimental artists by publishing underground books and curating avant-garde exhibitions. He has worked in many mediums, including sculpture, installation, photography, architecture and film. He is an outspoken advocate of human rights and freedom of speech. 

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.
