Andy Warhol (1928-1987) remains one of the most influential visual artists of modern times. With a background as a highly successful commercial artist, Warhol reinvented himself as a famous Pop Artist.
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.
