The famous skateboarding manufacturer, Skateroom taps into the visuals of The Andy Warhol Foundation to feature the iconic skulls series of 1976 by Andy Warhol. Made from seven-ply grade A Canadian maple wood; printed in various versions, such as blue, pink, white, grey, and peach, the skateboard comes with Andy Warhol’s official brand logo as well.
This remarkable piece portrays a human skull resting flat on a surface; it became popular in 1976, particularly in “The Factory” studio in New York. The skulls featured on the Skateroom items were dramatically portraying the manipulated shadows in each visual–inspired by an original b&w image captured by Warhol’s assistant.
According to art historians, this remarkable piece of “The Skull” was somehow Warhol’s obsessiveness with his on mortality. Interestingly, in a compilation of his Philosophies, Warhol speaks of his disbelief in this particular concept. ‘I don’t believe in it because you’re not around to know that it’s happened. I can’t say anything about it because I’m not prepared for it,'” —The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (1975)
