Description

René Magritte’s entire body of work confronts its audience with a sense of uncertainty, forcing the individual to reconsider his position within a world where things are not as they seem. Magritte’s ‘L’empire des lumières’ is no different as it presents us with elements depicting two conflicting worlds. Magritte’s masterful use of surrealism and treatment of light plunges the audience into confusion and doubt. Is this scene unfolding during day or during night?

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.
