In celebration of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s retrospective on Yoshitomo Nara, The Skateroom has partnered with the acclaimed Japanese artist and the institution to offer three limited skateboard editions: two triptychs and a standalone skate deck.

The designs for the collaborative series were inspired by a trio of major works from the momentous presentation: Untitled, Alone in the wind, and Peace Girl. Nara’s subjects of pastel-hued children with striking expressions are featured across the skate decks. Through this collaboration, The Skateroom will use proceeds from the sale to support global initiatives dedicated to empowering youth through skateboarding and education.

“The Skateroom is thrilled to be partnering for the first time with Yoshitomo Nara and the LACMA. This collaboration is a unique opportunity to eature some of Nara’s powerful work in the form of responsibly made art skateboard editions, especially with the goal of empowering youth all over the world,” expressed Charles-Antoine Bodson, The Skateroom founder. Prices for the skateboard editions start at $250 USD. They’re currently available on The Skateroom’s website.

The Yoshitomo Nara retrospective chronicles over three decades of the artist’s work from 1984 to 2020 – through the lens of his longtime passion for music. Following LACMA’s installment, the presentation will travel to the Yuz Museum in Shanghai (September–January 2021), the Museo Guggenheim Bilbao (February-May 2021) and the Kunsthal Rotterdam (June-September 2021). LACMA is temporarily closed due to lockdown measures amid COVID-19, visit the museum’s website for updates.
