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.
Inverted RA4 by Walead Beshty on skateboards.
The intention behind Walead Beshty’s work is the exploration of the relationship between images and the world in which they produce meaning. Inverted RA4 Contact Print / Processor Stall is part of Walead Beshty’s color curls series. The RA4 Contact Print Curl works are made using manipulating a jammed or faulty photographic processor to cast images of its interior onto a print. Each of these flaws is captured during the photograph’s production and put on display to reveal the beautiful diversity of the effects they produce.
