The legend of Basquiat continues to live on, evidenced by The Skateroom‘s collaborative effort with the estate of the late Jean-Michel Basquiat. As a result of their ambitious endeavor, a series of unique, inspired skateboard decks have been produced. Basquiat’s infamous works such as Gold Griot, In Italian and Quality Meats for the Public, amongst others have been translated onto the bottom of skate decks, tying together two complementary entities of street culture. The boards are currently being shown at the MoMa locations in New York, and at colette in Paris. They will also be available for purchase beginning January 7 on The Skateroom’s webshop.
