With the Trump administration now in office for 100 days, artistic activists Ai Weiwei and Shepard Fairey have teamed up with The Skateroom to mark the moment with a set of politically-charged artworks.

By inviting artists to create limited edition artworks on skateboards, The Skateroom, in turn, supports art institutions and nonprofit projects that empower children through skateboarding and art.

The graphic in Ai Weiwei's piece is derived from his "Study of Perspective" image series shot between 1995 to 2003. For this, the artist traveled across the globe and photographed himself flipping the bird against various notable landmarks and symbols of authority.

Shepard Fairey's iconoclastic tendencies are well noted, and here the Obey founder adapts his No Future artwork to denounce hate and propaganda. "No Future is a response to the election of Trump," said the artist. "My art is usually social and political regardless of who is in the White House, but my concerns and frustrations are amplified by the [recent] election."

Ai Weiwei's edition is priced at $3,000 each and available in a limited edition run of 666, with the first 66 hand signed by the artist himself. Similarly, 450 of Shepard Fairey's boards will be produced, priced at $450 each. Cop them from The Skateroom online store and during Art Market San Francisco.
