This skateboard triptych features a reproduction of Yoshitomo Nara’s Miss Margaret (2016), a painting that delivers the prominent Japanese artist’s trademark blend of childlike innocence and adult emotions on the same face. It also exemplifies the importance of eyes in Nara's later work, influenced by the change in his eyesight as he aged.
"Having lost my perfect eyesight—or having gained new sight—I started regarding myself just as one part of my audience," Nara, whose work is represented in MoMA’s collection, remarked. "They say human eyes are the mirror of the soul, and I used to draw them too carelessly... About ten years ago, however, I became more interested in expressing complex feelings in a more complex way."This Yoshitomo Nara Skateboard Triptych is produced by The Skateroom, a platform for promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards that supports youth-empowering organizations. Add your own wheels (not included) for a cool, functional skateboard or hang the triptych on your wall as art (wall mount included). For instructions on how to mount your boards, please click here.
