We teamed up with South African artist Robin Rhode, to produce a limited edition of five of his iconic artworks onto skateboards.

This is a limited run of 100 per visual, with the first 15 boards hand signed by the artist.

Robin Rhode has designed a skateboard exclusively for Skateistan. We produced 300 of these to cover Skateistan’s yearly worldwide needs in skateboards for their facilities in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa.

Some of these will be hand signed by the artist and auctioned to raise money and awareness for Skateistan’s skate school in Johannesburg.

We went to visit Robin in Berlin at his incredible studio. Heres the video !

Robin Rhode is famed for creating artwork that is informed and formed by urbanism, the city, the streets and its inhabitants. Rhode’s first Skateroom collection is inspired by a number of his outdoor wall artworks created over the past few years. Many of these pieces relate specifically to urban culture – incorporating aspects of modern music or dance. Rhode’s influences also extend beyond this, ranging from his Cape Town upbringing to the cultural act of storytelling within South Africa. Rhode’s collection comprises of five decks, each taking influence from different elements.
