Raymond Pettibon - No Title (Boston Brave) skateboard edition

Limited Edition of 250

No Title (Boston Brave), 2017,
Raymond PETTIBON

In this second collaboration with Raymond Pettibon, The Skateroom explores the artist’s baseball-themed works to release two limited editions of 250: No Title (The raised hands…), 2013, and No Title (Boston Brave), 2017. Through these visuals, viewers witness Pettibon’s ability to narrow motion down to a single moment frozen in time.

The present work depicts the baseball player, Warren Spahn, in the middle of throwing a left-handed pitch. The image illustrates Pettibon’s fascination with the visual language of this archetypal American sport, which is a common theme in his work. As Raymond explains, “to draw someone with a wetsuit or a tight, double-knit baseball outfit doesn’t lend itself to what I’m looking to describe. It’s just one snapshot; I’m trying to depict something that is an action. If you draw a baseball player, for instance, with the old-time baggy flannels, you can depict the action better than you can with something that looks painted on to his body. […] But it’s also meant to go back in time to when baseball had a more of a larger-than-life epic quality.”

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.

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.

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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

** Shipping to the UK might experience some delay due to the Brexit.
