Andy Hope was eager to collaborate with us, when he heard that we supported the NGO Skateistan and he loved the idea of getting creative to help them out.
Through this collaboration, we donated 15,000$ to Skateistan in Mazar-e-Sharif in the name of the artist, as well as 20% of the sales from this limited edition.
The equivalent to providing programs for up to 1300 students in Afghanistan for 2 weeks!

About Andy Hope 1930
Andy Hope 1930 (born Andreas Hofer) is a German artist who uses imagery from comic books, film noir, and forms of early Minimalism to make works that careen from the grotesque to the intimate and restrained. His flat works are often constructed on supports that he buys at various flea markets, while his sculptures often enlarge childish toys—rockets or action figures, for example—to fantastical sizes. He frequently references art history, as in his series of meticulous reproductions of works by Kasimir Malevich.
German, b. 1963, Munich, Germany, based in Berlin, Germany
