Ai Weiwei x The SK8room Limited Edition Skateboard Decks

The SK8room has once again collaborated with the art world, this time with Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei. Releasing three limited edition skateboard decks, the designs reference Weiwei’s major artworks ‘Sunflower Seeds’ and ‘He Xie’ and feature expressions such as “There are no outdoor sports as graceful as throwing stones at a dictatorship in the world.” The Belgian company will donate 20% of all skateboard sales towards Skateistan – a non-profit organization that works with youth from various backgrounds to build trust and empowerment through skateboarding and educational activities. The boards are currently on display at The SK8room gallery shop in Brussels, and available for purchase online.
