Description

The intention behind Walead Beshty’s work is the exploration of the relationship between images and the world in which they produce meaning. The Copper Surrogate series sees Beshty produce works made of copper specifically for the purpose of exploiting the space in which they are to be exhibited. Additionally, the artist explores the interaction that occurs between the works and the installers that set them in place, revealed only through the distinct oxidation patterns they leave behind. The Skateroom is privileged to this this limited series of original copper decks by Walead Beshty.

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 $800,000+ to support social projects empowering at-risk youth around the world. In 2019, we became a Certified B Corporation.

The Skateroom is 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.

You have up to 14 days after receiving your order to request a return. 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.
