Description

This collaboration elaborates on an image of one of Orozco’s most iconic works — Black Kites (1997) — which was originally conceived for Documenta X shortly after one of Orozco’s lungs collapsed in 1996. The experience of spending a week in the hospital inspired him to create something via “a very slow process.” Over the next few months he covered an entire human skull in a checkerboard grid made of graphite. The work embodies ideas of the memento mori and brings to mind questions of our human fate and mortality.

“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.
