Andy Warhol: Skateboard Triptych Car Crash
Warhol spoke of replicating images to empty them of their meanings. His Death and Disaster series—began with his famed portraits of Marilyn Monroe—attempts the same trick with macabre yet everyday images like electric chairs, funerals and car crashes. Commenting on the fragility of life, Warhol said, "Isn't life a series of images that change as they repeat themselves?" Here, his work Disaster #2 has been interpreted as a skateboard deck triptych in a limited edition of 5000. Hanging wall mounts included.The Skateroom is a platform for promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards that supports youth-empowerment and development. Proceeds from this project will benefit Skateistan, an award-winning, international NGO with projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia and South Africa. Skateistan is the first international development initiative to combine skateboarding with educational outcomes.
