This exclusive collaboration between The Skateroom and the Jean-Michel Basquiat estate sees the brilliant Gold Griot expertly printed on the base of this high quality Canadian maple wood skateboard. Before Basquiat became famous in the eighties, his work was already legendary on the streets of Soho, New York under the tag SAMO. The inspirations for Basquiat’s works are drawn from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture, the NY skate scene and his artistic contemporaries.

All boards from The Skateroom are constructed from 7-ply Canadian Maple, which has been sourced from sustainable forests. All designs are individually silkscreen printed by hand to ensure the artwork looks as good as possible - the artist’s signature is printed on the back. Once ordered, your boards will be delivered in custom protective packaging and include special wall mounts which give the board a floating appearance.

The Skateroom have collaborated with the international charity Skateistan, an international NGO that uses skateboarding as a tool for empowering disadvantaged youth. Proceeds of The Skateroom’s collaborations go to supporting their work worldwide.

  • Artist Jean-Michel Basquiat
