Bringing together tradition and contemporary culture, this JR Skateboard features the French artist JR's work Migrants, Mayra, Picnic Across the border, Tecate, Mexico-USA, 2017. At the US-Mexico border, in Tecate, JR invited local residents for a “giant picnic” across the wall in a project that offered a sense of community in a heavily politicized context. A huge photograph of the eyes of Mayra, a “Dreamer” — or a young undocumented immigrant falling under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — laid atop the installation. With this responsibly-made deck, The Skateroom creates a highly impactful wall display, with the option to take it out for a ride.

This exclusive and limited edition of 500 skate deck made in collaboration between The Skateroom and JR mix the energies of underground culture and legendary artists. The Skateroom is a platform for promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards that supports youth-empowering organizations.

JR
From the streets of Cartagena to Shanghai, the French artist JR can very well be the greatest addition to the urban world of art. Pushing boundaries with his universal statements, his monumental portraits express the human side of social issues and tell the stories of everyday people. Creating large-scale public photography projects in cities around the world that address local political conflicts, JR has in recent years become one of the most visible contemporary artists on the international stage.
