Happy Tears, 1964

€220,00
Open Edition

The solo deck presents a close-up of a woman displaying an emotionally charged, ambiguous moment. She has been illustrated in Roy LICHTENSTEIN’s famous comic book style, with Ben-Day dots and primary colors. 

As with all the artist’s leading women, the heroine intentionally possesses idealized features, including perfectly winged mascara and flawlessly manicured nails. Despite the tears depicted, the overall expression appears  happy but like so many of LICHTENSTEIN’s women, the viewer is invited to put their own emotions into the characters. With Happy Tears we do not know the source of her feelings but the anonymity and ambiguity surrounding her allow for the viewer to become a participant in the drama.

What types of editions are there?
  • Limited Edition: editions available in defined quantities, a fixed number that will determine the amount of skate decks that will ever be produced for an artwork. All limited editions come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Some editions are also numbered on the top print — see product pictures. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
  • Open Edition: these editions are not limited, which means that an indefinite number can be produced and restocked over the course of a set period. Newsletter subscribers get first updates on when that period is nearing an end.
  • Original Artwork: usually hand-made by the artist and unique, these artworks are the most exclusive pieces in each collection. Coming in varied sizes and textures, they are rare collectibles from the artist straight to your wall. 
  • Time Limited Edition: a timed release allows us to sell a skate art edition for a set period of time. Once the window ends, the release won't be available to buy anymore.
What's a COA?

CoA is short for certificate of authenticity. CoA’s are either signed by the artist or THE SKATEROOM in order to validate the editions. It is specificized on each product page if a CoA is provided with the edition.
