The Skateroom x Jean-Michel Basquiat – Skateboard Single Deck - Pez Dispenser (1984)
About Jean-Michel Basquiat - Single Deck Skateboard - Pez Dispenser (1984)
Bringing together tradition and contemporary culture, this Jean-Michel Basquiat Skateboard deck features a reproduction of Basquiat's work Pez Dispenser (1984). This masterpiece represents Basquiat’s iconic dinosaur drawing, wearing a crown, rendered in his immediately recognizable graffiti art style. Basquiat’s dinosaur wearing a crown also refers to the US candy dispensers, Pez thus arguing for a commentary on the American consumerist society and popular culture.
