Jean-Michel Basquiat: Skateboard Triptych Skull
Why We Chose This
1980s art icon and native New Yorker Jean-Michel Basquiat was hailed for works that draw on a multivalent range of sources, from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture and his artistic contemporaries. Before he rose to art stardom, however, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO©, Basquiat's fragmented poetry and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire a new generation of graffiti artists today.

Description
Past and contemporary street culture come full circle in this triptych of high-quality Canadian maple wood skateboards. 1980s art icon and native New Yorker Jean-Michel Basquiat was hailed for works that draw on a multivalent range of sources, from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture and his artistic contemporaries. Before he rose to art stardom, however, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO©, Basquiat's fragmented poetry and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire a new generation of graffiti artists today. This set of three of skate decks, which features images from of the 1981 work Untitled - Skull was made in collaboration between The Skateroom and The Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Wheels and trucks are not included.

The Skateroom is a platform for promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards that supports youth-empowering organizations.
