We’ve teamed up with the estate of the late American artist Jean-Michel Basquiat to produce an edition of skateboards carrying some of the artist’s iconic paintings from the early eighties.

Past and Contemporary street culture come full circle through this collaboration.

Before Basquiat rose to become one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC.

Under the tag SAMO, his poetic and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire new generations of graffiti artists to this day

Needless to say we are very happy with the final results and we hope we’ve made him proud!
