The Skateroom has worked with Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei and LA-based street artist, graphic designer and activist Shepard Fairey to mark the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency. The result of the collaboration is two sets of politically-charged skate decks. For its work with Ai Weiwei, The Skateroom has reworked his Study of Perspective: The White House artwork, part of a series of images shot between 1995 and 2003, to cover a set of three decks. Shepard Fairey’s decks are an adaptation of his No Future work, which denounces hate-speech and propaganda. The Ai Weiwei edition is limited to a run of 666 hand screen-printed Canadian maple skateboards, with the first 66 sets of three being hand signed by the artist and priced at $3,000 USD. For a set of the Shepard Fairey decks, each of the 450 editions costs $450 USD, and both sets are available now from The Skateroom’s web store.

As well as collaborating with Ai Weiwei and Shepard Fairey, The Skateroom recently released a set of decks featuring a classic Andy Warhol artwork.
