With a suitably rowdy debut for THE SKATEROOM GALLERY scorched into our memories forever, we can happily sit back and say that Brussels Gallery Weekend was a success.
Thank you to all of you who came by, shared a beer with us, and took part in uniting art and skateboarding to create a better world. And a massive thank you to Robin Rhode, our artist in collaboration for this unique activation at our Brussels space. A lot more still to come!
Twilight Colour Wheel
Hand-signed & Limited Edition of 10
It’s official. Rue Van Eyck 54 is open for business. On Thursday 9th September, the THE SKATEROOM GALLERY was lit up, Robin Rhode’s series of 15 unique, handmade skateboard editions front and center. A crowd gathered and could not be dispersed, even when the heavens opened and soaked us all. The power of art and skateboarding to create change was alive and well. And the artist was there in person to unveil the collaboration.
On display at our Brussels Gallery Weekend event: the 15 unique ‘Fragment’ pieces, a number of remaining editions from our previous ‘Charcoal’ collection with Robin Rhode, and of course his new limited edition ‘Twilight Colour Wheel’. This exclusive polyptych (8-piece edition), displays a feather of a different colour on each deck which together form a ‘colour wheel’ of plumage.
Although we are delighted to announce that every one of the 15 unique pieces were sold over the weekend, don’t worry: those of you who missed the event can still be a part of the movement…
The ‘Twilight Colour Wheel’ collection is available for you to pre-order now on our webstore. As with our past Robin Rhode collections, 10% of the revenue goes directly towards funding Skateistan South Africa’s Johannesburg skate school.
