Limited Edition of 25

Seeds – Hand Signed,
Ai WEIWEI

The artwork for this deck is directly inspired from Ai Weiwei’s iconic ‘Sunflower Seeds’ installation at the Tate Modern in 2010. The installation puts into context the effects of globalization and mass production in China in feeding western consumerism, and pays respect to those often forgotten at the bottom of the production chain – inevitably, it draws the conclusion that cheap labor work, at assembly lines within large factories for example, is a form of modern slavery.

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.

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.
