Skateboarding culture continues to have massive influence and appeal. Something about the fact that this sport has no rules, is a form of individual expression, and can be done just about anywhere has inspired legions of rookies and professionals alike.
Skateboard art and design has been an integral part of this culture since its beginning; for skaters, their board is their medium for expression, often painting them, creating designs, or placing stickers to reflect their individuality. Brands like Supreme have embraced this, in turn bolstering their own colossal influence, by collaborating with blue chip artists like Jeff Koons, John Baldessari, and Ai Weiwei. Fine art and skateboarding might seem to be strange bedfellows at first, but both worlds celebrate and empower the iconoclasts, the misfits, and outsiders of society. These limited-edition skateboards have evolved into iconic works of art in their own right, providing snapshots into trends of contemporary art and culture.
