The Skateroom Spotlights JR’s 'Hidden' Louvre Pyramid for Latest Collaboration

While helping raise funds for a favela initiative in Brazil.

JR is partnering up with The Skateroom on a set of skateboards. The triptych edition features the acclaimed French artist’s mindbending outdoor artwork on the Louvre Museum entitled Hidden in the City: the Louvre Pyramid (with JR). JR collaborated with camouflage artist Liu Bolin on the installation which made its debut back in 2016.

The JR x Skateroom collaboration also raises awareness for the impoverished neighborhoods in Brazil with 30% of proceeds going to support two social projects: Case Amarela and Coletivo Skate Maré. “Most notably, the construction of a permanent skatepark within the favelas will provide the youth with a safe space to express itself,” said The Skateroom.

The set will launch on March 29 at The Skateroom’s website. Pricing details have yet to be announced.
