These unique skate decks are true collector’s items. With images from art legends like Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, they command attention. The partnership LUMAS x The Skateroom combines art with skating while also supporting social projects for kids and youth in need.
About The Skateroom
The Skateroom collaborates with renowned artists and their estates to release limited edition skate decks. The artists include household names like Ai Weiwei, Robert Rauschenberg, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Shepard Fairey. Proceeds support social projects selected by the artists as well as the international organization Skateistan. An award-winning NGO, Skateistan currently works with over 1,500 at-risk youths from age 5-17.
10% of the proceeds goes directly to the project Skate and Create, which benefits youth in South Africa, Afghanistan, and Cambodia. This is a remarkable when you consider that just $20, for example, can provide 150 Afghan girls with safe transport to school for an entire week.
