Description

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.

This exclusive and limited edition skateboard made in collaboration between The Skateroom and The Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat mixes 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.

    Basquiat

    Jean-Michel Basquiat is one of the best known artists of his generation and is widely considered one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His career in art spanned the late 1970s through the 1980s until his death in 1988, at the age of 27. Basquiat works are edgy and raw, and through a bold sense of color and composition, he maintains a fine balance between seemingly contradictory forces such as control and spontaneity, menace and wit, urban imagery and primitivism. The Basquiat brand embodies the values and aspirations of young, international urban culture.
    The conjunction of various media is an integral element of Basquiat's art. His paintings are typically covered with text and codes of all kinds: words, letters, numerals, pictograms, logos, map symbols, diagrams and more, and featured multi-panel paintings and individual canvases with exposed stretcher bars, the surface dense with writing, collage and imagery.
