THE SKATEROOM closed out 2022 with a vinyl-inspired set of decks by German artist, Gregor Hildebrandt. While it’s almost halfway into the new year, the art collective has followed from one legend to another through a new limited edition collaboration with skater and photographer, Ed Templeton.

The capsule is based off of Templeton’s Wires Crossed series. Created between 1995 and 2012, Templeton describes the collection as his life’s work, as he chronicled the often misunderstood life of skaters — from their triumphs, injuries, relationships and emotions. “I was a drifting kid who had no aim, but then I found this thing that put me around these great people,” Templeton said when first recalling his introduction to skateboarding. “The act of skateboarding is secondary to the community,” he added.

Each set is an edition of 50 and comes as a triptych. For those looking to purchase, the decks are available to purchase for $750 USD via THE SKATEROOM. Ten percent of the net revenue supports Free Movement Skateboarding, which seeks to empower refugees in Athens through skateboarding.
