The legend of Basquiat continues to live on, evidenced by The Skateroom‘s collaborative effort with the estate of the late Jean-Michel Basquiat.

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.
