In our first collaboration in 2020, THE SKATEROOM is partnering with American artist Raymond Pettibon, David Zwirner gallery, and MoMA Design Store to offer two iconic editions inspired by works from The Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) collection. In this first collaboration, we explored the artist’s surfer-themed works to release two limited editions of 250: No Title (You have a clear…), 1990, and No Title (The bright flatness), 2003. Through these visuals, viewers ride along with a counterculture hero who, perhaps, is the artist’s nearest proxy.
In our second collaboration, The Skateroom continues to explore the internationally acclaimed artist’s surfer-themed works. This time, the set of six decks, takes on a bigger scale: No Title (I see the…), 2019. In the spirit of Hokusai’s wave, Pettibon illustrates the magnitude of Nature over Man. This limited skateboard edition of 50 is hand-signed on deck by Raymond Pettibon himself.
In 2021, we are partnering again with Raymond Pettibon, David Zwirner gallery, and MoMA Design Store to explore 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.
Through the sales of these collaborations with Raymond PETTIBON, $50,000 will be donated for the construction of Skateistan’s fifth Skate School in Bamyan, Afghanistan.
