Cicely and Miles Visit the Obamas

€1.250,00

Limited Edition of 100

Available in a limited edition of 100, Cicely and Miles Visit the Obamas, captures a scene where Miles Davis and Cicely Tyson, stand in front of the White House. Describing the original work from 2017, Zadie Smith says ‘In this portrait, the Obamas are invisible, represented only by the house they’d just left, while the actress Cicely Tyson and her lover Miles Davis have been transported from a long-ago black-and-white society photograph onto the green impasto glory of the White House front lawn… Taylor thinks primarily in colors, shapes, and lines–he has a spatial, tonal genius. Form responds to form: the negative space around Cicely and Miles in the photograph suggests the exact proportions of the White House, yet in the transition the abstract sometimes becomes figured, and vice versa, as if the border between things didn’t matter.’

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.
