Description

‘Women Are Heroes’ is a project launched by JR to tell the stories of those who are often the first to be harmed in situations of conflict: Women. By revealing the unspoken grief of these unsung heroes, JR explores the commonalities that exist in their gaze, and ultimately seeks to discover what unifies us all: Humanity. Despite the harshness they have endured, he exposes the light and hope that still exists within them.

When the project launched, JR promised to share their stories with the world – a promise he has since kept, and that we are grateful to continue through the release of these editions.

“Printed Signature on the deck” refers to the printed signature of the artist included on the top-print. Most decks feature this printed signature, though some specified editions can also feature a hand signed artist signature

Our Social Impact is at the core of who we are and what we stand for. We donate up to 30% of every sale to an NGO dedicated to moving humanity forward. The % given to support social projects depends on various factors among which the edition size, the price, the retailer’s margin, the royalites paid to the artists and foundations. Since the start of our project, we’ve given more than $500,000+ to support social projects empowering at-risk youth around the world.

These editions of artwork are intended for decorative purposes. While you could definitely skate on them if you wanted to, we provide you with one wall mount per deck to hang them on your wall, just like a painting.

We provide you with a set of instructions that tells you everything you need to know to hang your board up. Our team is also always ready to help if you have any additional questions.

Direct exposure to sunlight might result in discoloration and damage to your editions. To avoid this, we strongly suggest hanging your art-decks away from direct natural light.

We allow a 14-day period following delivery to process all exchange and return requests. Once your request is received, you will receive an e-mail indicating the next steps.

The Skateroom makes art accessible to all by delivering worldwide. Shipping estimates are always provided in our webstore once you enter your delivery address. We typically process and ship your order within 48 hours. From there, the delivery takes 3-5 business days to reach you. A tracking number is also provided to you to facilitate the process.
