The Sk8Room Launches
Last Monday an online skateboard art gallery, TheSk8Room, launched with the release of 3 limited edition ROA decks. Their collection is expansive and diverse, offering over a 1000 decks from over 100 artists ranging from hand painted Ed Templeton decks to editions of hand numbered Atlas CBS decks. They also donate 20% of each sale to Skateistan!
This is an interesting moment for the youth created skateboard culture and the overlapping art culture. TheSk8Room is the first platform solely dedicated to promoting, selling, and producing art on skateboards. Beyond their philanthropic efforts, they believe, “you can have the work of a major contemporary artist at home, without having to sell the kids.” Watch the amazing video they made with ROA in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and check out their website. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for what the site releases!
