52 editions from Andy WARHOL
Our collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc.
This collaboration between THE SKATEROOM and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts draws on Warhol’s iconic art across different periods of his career. Through his work, Andy Warhol redefined the way we see the world by turning the ordinary into something extraordinary. He also firmly believed that change was only possible if a person sought it out, rather than a natural occurrence of its own – a value shared at THE SKATEROOM.
Before assuming his place in history, Andy Warhol (1928-1987) as a commercial illustrator in New York for over a decade. Although he began painting in the late 1950s, he emerged into the spotlight in 1962 when he exhibited wooden replicas of Brillo soap pad boxes, along with paintings of Coca-Cola bottles, and his infamous Campbell’s soup cans. Warhol’s mass-producing silkscreen technique was key in reducing his depictions into insipid and dehumanized cultural icons that reflected the alleged emptiness of American material culture, along with Warhol’s own emotional withdrawal towards his creations. Eventually, Warhol’s work propelled him to the forefront of the emerging Pop art movement in America.
For almost a decade, THE SKATEROOM has been working closely with The Andy Warhol Foundation, upholding the artist’s timeless legacy and channeling it into iconic skate art decks. THE SKATEROOM is now proud to present the latest result of our cooperation – the first limited collection of 100 Self-Portraits editions, in partnership with The Brant Foundation.
