The Skateroom x JR - Skateboard Triptych La Pyramide

Bringing together tradition and contemporary culture, this Skateroom Skateboard features the French artist JR's work La Pyramide. In 2016, JR was invited to the Musee du Louvre. For the event, the artist announced he would make the museum's famous glass Pyramid disappear. To achieve the feat, JR completely covered the structure with historical photographs pre-dating its construction. What resulted was a surprising anamorphosis: the museum's forgotten former entrance bursting forth into the present and reclaiming its former glory. In doing so, JR revives the past and evokes the polemic that once surrounded the Pyramid's construction - inadvertently, we are left to wonder whether we attach meaning to the wrong things, or simply are too quick to forget. 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 350 triptych 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. More details on The Skateroom x JR - Skateboard 28 Millimètres:

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.
