The Skateroom has already worked with some of your favorite artists — the brand has produced boards featuring the artwork of Basquiat, Nobuyoshi Araki and Ai Wei Wei — and now the company has once again teamed up with the Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts.
For its new limited edition deck series, the Skateroom has printed Warhol’s 1971 “Electric Chairs” series in the original screen-printed colors. The Skateroom sells the boards as artworks in their own right, passing on the proceeds to charities that empower youth. Currently the brand is working with Skateistan, a non-profit creating skateparks and mentorship in Afganistan, South Africa and Cambodia.
The boards were released in Hong Kong last week and are now available online. Each limited edition board is priced at $250 and you can buy a collectors version with a 100 boards in a custom built box for $1750.
