Art meets the world of skateboarding in a new set of sculptures by artists Marcel Dzama, Sage Vaughn, Lori Damiano, and Sean Cliver. Made in collaboration between furniture brand Modernica and skateboarding mainstay Girl, the sculptures feature the latter company’s signature bathroom logo crafted in wood and overlaid with each artist’s imprint.

Sean Cliver, whose been a longtime skateboard artist, opted to repeat a set of pop art-inspired figures with the faces skulled out. Illustrator Lori Damiano has worked for a range of clients, including Nickelodeon and Stumptown Coffee and stenciled in an actual girl silhouette, while imbuing a cosmic vibe along the negative space of the figure. Floral motifs run throughout Sage Vaughn’s drippy collage-like iteration, while Marcel Dzama brings a more brooding vibe to his wooden doll — namely a fierce goat that is placed at the body of the sculpture.

Each doll sculpture sizes at 22 x 11 inches and is crafted with 15 layers of maple wood. For collectors looking to purchase, the artwork is available for $400 USD each or as a full set for $1,500 USD.
