This limited-edition skateboard triptych features a reproduction of Yoshitomo Nara in 2020 artwork Light Haze Day. The work reflects the artist’s search for a new stylistic direction: patchworks of shimmering color that are reminiscent of French modernist landscape painting. Nara has devised an almost iridescent hue that departs from past work, signaling an emotional shift that may have taken place during the pandemic.
The Yoshitomo Nara Light Haze Days Skateboard Triptych is produced by The Skateroom, a platform for promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards that supports youth-empowering organizations, and is made from seven-ply Canadian maple wood. Each board measures 32h x 8.25w x 0.5" per deck. Yoshitomo Nara’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.

Since the mid-1990s, Yoshitomo Nara has exhibited around the world, working with a range of institutions he feels a strong affinity with. His approach to art-making is similarly dependent on his sense of connection to the process of creating; his paintings are expressions of colors that breathe life into his bold images; his sculptures bear traces of his fingers that have shaped their forms; and his drawings, a daily practice, capture the spontaneity of thoughts. Nara has also exhibited his photographic works to depict his daily life and travels. To celebrate the long relationship with Yoshitomo Nara and MoMA, we’ve closely collaborated to create an exclusive line of products that feature details of Nara’s work. Yoshitomo Nara’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.
