Bringing together tradition and contemporary culture, this Skateroom Skateboard features the Belgian surrealist artist René Magritte's work L’empire des Lumières. René Magritte’s entire body of work confronts its audience with a sense of uncertainty, forcing the individual to reconsider his position within a world where things are not as they seem. Magritte’s ‘L’empire des lumières’ is no different as it presents us with elements depicting two conflicting worlds. Magritte’s masterful use of surrealism and treatment of light plunges the audience into confusion and doubt. Is this scene unfolding during day or during night? 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 250 triptych made in collaboration between The Skateroom and René Magritte 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.

Magritte
René Magritte was one of the most famous surrealist painters of all time. His ability to challenge perception inspired many artists to come, such as Andy Warhol, Jan Verdoodt and Jasper Johns. Furthermore, his idiosyncratic vision of Surrealism has won over the hearts and minds of millions. He worked across various media including painting, printmaking, sculpting, photography, and film. His depiction of normal, everyday objects rearranged in an unusual way allowed his viewers to take a deeper look at what was in front of them and realize what the image truly represented. One of his most well-known pieces, The Treachery of Images exemplifies his ability to give new meanings to objects. It is an image of a pipe, and beneath it, a message that reads, “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” (“This is not a pipe”). This ability to make the mundane strange and the known unknown has solidified Magritte’s talents in the art world. Eventually, it has profoundly affected the Conceptualist and Pop Art movements, to this very day.
