Jean-Michel Basquiat x The Skateroom [Limited Edition]
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with The Skateroom, a social enterprise whose main purpose is to help empower youth using art and skateboarding. They collaborate with artists to produce limited edition artwork on the medium of skateboard decks and in turn a percentage of the profits from the art sales goes towards helping finance social projects around the world.
To celebrate we are selling this limited edition piece, by the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. "Before Basquiat rose to become one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO, his poetic and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire new generations of graffiti artists to this day."
Past and Contemporary street culture come full circle through this collaboration.
100% of the proceed from this unique purchase will go towards funding CJF's next skatepark construction project for the youth of Luanda, Angola.
