Andy Warhol Limited Edition Skateboard Skull Blue The Skateroom
Andy Warhol Limited Edition Skateboard Skull Blue The Skateroom

Limited Edition of 100

Skull Blue,
Andy WARHOL

The Skateroom, in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, presents a limited edition of 100 featuring Andy Warhol’s Skulls series.

Created between 1976 and 1977 at Warhol’s New York studio, known as the Factory, Skulls presents the image of a human skull resting on a flat surface. The series is based on a black and white photograph originally taken by one of Warhol’s assistants. Following Warhol’s instructions, his assistant took photographs while casting a variety of dramatic shadows by manipulating the light source’s position.

As a result, the forehead and cheekbone stand out brightly while the eye sockets and other recesses create a deep void that confronts its audience. The liveliness of the colors used is directly placed in opposition with the intensity of the subject matter.

The Skulls series, like most of Andy Warhol’s body of work, is ambiguous in its interpretation. Some art historians have linked the artworks to Warhol’s nearly lethal shooting in 1968, implying an obsessive awareness of death following the event. Yet, in his book The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (1975), Andy Warhol himself famously claimed, “I don’t believe in it because you’re not around to know that it’s happened. I can’t say anything about it because I’m not prepared for it.”

Working with our partners, we help empower at-risk youth, build new skateparks and develop education facilities & resource programs.

Buying guide

“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.

Art for Social Impact is at the core of who we are and what we stand for. We donate up to 25% of profits to support social projects. The percentage donated depends on several factors such as the edition, the price, the retailer’s margin, the royalties paid to the artists and foundations. Since the start of The Skateroom in 2014, we’ve donated more than $1,000,000 to support social projects empowering at-risk youth around the world.

In 2019, we became a Certified B Corporation. The Skateroom is also CO2 neutral, chooses to source its skateboard wood from certified sustainable forests, and uses water-based ink for its prints.

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 everything you need to hang your boards up. It’s really easy to set up and you can find all the instuctions right here. Our team is also always ready to help if you have any additional questions.

You have up to 14 days after receiving your order to request a return. The 14-day return policy is applicable on all products except limited hand-signed editions. We will provide you with a return label to send us back the purchased edition in the same condition as when received, with the original packaging and documentation.

The Skateroom makes art accessible to everyone by delivering WORLDWIDE.

Shipping estimates will be provided in the checkout process, once you enter your delivery address. Typically we process and ship your order within 48 hours (except for editions in pre-orders). You will get a tracking number to follow your shipment. It usually takes 3-5 additional business days to arrive.
