The Skateroom creates editions of contemporary artwork on skate decks. These artworks are intended to be hung on a wall, just like a painting. However, you could also add wheels and skate on them! Each board is constructed in Canada from seven layers from sustainable maple.
White Bricks by Kelly Walker on skateboards.
In his systematic encounters with pop culture, Kelley Walker has earned himself the nickname of “post-pop wizard”. Walker produces a series of loaded pop images through a copy, cut, and reprint technique that often involves screen-printing and an Epson ink jet printer. The artist also explores the concept of contamination by integrating alien bodies and elements to his works. Whether computer glitches appearing on photographs of natural disasters, or perfectly constructed brick walls cemented with pages from decoration reviews, the results are often violent, hilarious, spontaneous, and overdetermined all at once. Rather than simple silkscreens, Walker’s masterful precision often creates the impression of looking at a mosaic.
