“The Trump drawings were done as posters for the Women’s March in January 2017.
The images were then used by the Skateroom to make skateboards to sell. The proceeds, the money goes to building schools in underprivileged countries.
My answer is Yes”

Paul Mccarthy, 2018

We have teamed up with Paul McCarthy and Hauser & Wirth for the second time to produce very exclusive limited editions of eight of his drawings onto skateboards.

For this new collaboration, Paul McCarthy allowed us to produce his 8 iconic drawings.

These drawings have been especially made for the Women’s March in 2017.

With our first collaboration with Paul McCarthy in 2016 we managed to raise close to 250 000 $ to entirely fund the building of Skateistan first skateschool in Johannesburg

This time, around 20% of the profits of the sales will help fund and maintain Skateistan “Skate and Create”, “Youth leadership”, “Outreach” and “Back to School” programs in Johannesburg skate school facility.

In 2016, there were 322 active students at the Skateistan School in Johannesburg, of which 44% were girls. Through the opening of the Skate School, Skateistan was able to offer more children and youth the chance to participate in “Skate and Create”, the most active program in Johannesburg.

The back to school program saw 75 youth gradually aclimatize to the new learning environment outside of public school. Skateistan worked together with 20 youth leaders to run events such as Go Skateboarding Day, Womens Day and Mandela Day
