Andy Hope was eager to collaborate with us, when he heard that we supported the NGO Skateistan and he loved the idea of getting creative to help them out.
So we went to visit his studio in Berlin to get a feel of his work and get some of his boards hand signed… And it was just like walking into toy heaven! Check the video:

Through this collaboration, we donated 15,000$ to Skateistan in Mazar-e-Sharif in the name of the artist, as well as 20% of the sales from this limited edition.
The equivalent to providing programs for up to 1300 students in Afghanistan for 2 weeks!
German Artist, Andy Hope 1930’s (originally Andreas Hofer) style borrows from comic book superheroes, dinosaurs, devils, spaceships, villains and science fiction illustration, mixing these elements with artistic positions such as those of Kasimir Malevich, James Ensor, Marcel Duchamp and Paul Klee. He creates over-paintings, collages and cut outs that have been exhibited around the world.
