Art Legends Make A Statement With LUMAS x THE SKATEROOM
These unique skate decks are true collector’s items. With images from art legends like Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, they command attention. The partnership LUMAS x The Skateroom combines art with skating while also supporting social projects for kids and youth in need.
The Skateroom is a platform for promoting, selling, and producing art on skateboards in order to support youth-empowerment and development. Proceeds from this project will benefit Skateistan, an award-winning, international NGO with projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. Skateistan is the first international development initiative to combine skateboarding with educational outcomes.
The Skateboards are now available for viewings at Lumas Gallery in Paragon #04-47.

Andy Warhol is one of the most influential figures from contemporary art and culture. Warhol’s life and work inspire creative thinkers worldwide thanks to his enduring imagery, his artfully cultivated celebrity, and the ongoing research of dedicated scholars.
His never ending curiosity resulted in an enormous body of work that spanned every available medium and, most importantly, contributed to the collapse of boundaries between high and low culture.
These skateboards are a fusion that would be completely in his wheelhouse. Just like Warhol’s pop art, they blur the lines between high and popular culture.
1980s art icon and native New Yorker Jean-Michel Basquiat established himself as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His range of influences spanned from Greek, Roman, and African art to jazz, pop culture and his fellow contemporaries.
In the 80s, Jean-Michel Basquiat’s art could be found where skateboarding now thrives: on the city streets. By the time Basquiat rose to international stardom, his work was already legendary throughout New York.
These skateboards celebrate his characteristic visual vocabulary that contains elements of jazz and modern pop culture.
The Skateboards are available for viewings at Lumas Gallery in Paragon #04-47.
