For its latest project, The Skateroom has teamed up with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to release a series of skate decks featuring the artist's 1970s work, Skulls. The iconic imagery is printed on five different decks, each of which comes with one wall mount.

Warhol created Skulls at his New York studio between 1976 and 1977. The series, which is based on a black and white photograph taken by one of Warhol's assistants, features the image of a human skull positioned on a flat surface. In mimicking the dramatic shadows captured by his assistant, Warhol chose to accentuate the forehead and cheekbone of the skull, while the eye sockets create a void that is generally unmistakable to the viewer.

While it was never confirmed, some art enthusiasts believe Skulls to be linked to Warhol's nearly lethal shooting in 1968, insisting he became obsessed with death following the incident. Still, like most of his work, it remains ambiguous in interpretation.

The Skateroom decks come in limited editions of 100 for each colorway, numbered and marked with a printed signature. Made from Canadian maple wood, the decks measure 31 inches by 8 inches.
