Andy Warhol: Skateboard Colored Campbell's Soup Cans Set of 8
Why We Chose This
Warhol’s soup cans are among the most iconic works in modern art. The original 1962 series is part of MoMA’s collection, and this playful take on the classic benefits Skateistan, an international NGO that uses skateboarding and art to support youth in developing countries.

The Museum of Modern Art established the world's first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design. MoMA Design Store carries a selection of design objects from that collection. We only offer authorized versions in the colors and materials selected by the original designers. MoMA's design collection is ever-changing, a reflection of the evolving field of design itself.
Among the most iconic works in modern art, Warhol's 32 Campbell's Soup Cans paintings took various forms, including a 1965 series comprised of 19 different colored cans. For these works, Warhol not only used ink colors that departed from real colors, but also spray painted the backgrounds and the lower (white) portion of the label in different colors. The result was a collection that was both unexpected and familiar.
These groundbreaking works are the inspiration for this series of skate decks, where each color has been produced in a limited edition of 5,000. 1000 units are sold as a set of 8 in special gift box. Hanging wall mounts included.
The Skateroom is a platform for promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards that supports youth-empowerment and development. Proceeds from this project will benefit Skateistan, an award-winning, international NGO with projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Skateistan is the first international development initiative to combine skateboarding with educational outcomes.
