Brand: The Skateroom x Jean-Michel Basquiat Estate
Season: Spring 2017
Key Pieces: Gastruck, Trumpet, Robot, Light Blue Movers, Untitled
Editor’s Notes: Following their first collection back in 2014, the Skateroom has aligned with the estate of the late American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat once again for five new edition of skateboards that incorporate some of the artist’s iconic paintings from the early eighties. Before Basquiat rose to become one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC.
Prices start at $200 to $800 and part of the proceeds of this collection helps fund Skateistan’s yearly worldwide operational costs — an award-winning international non-profit organization that uses skateboarding and education for youth empowerment.
