This rare limited edition vintage skate deck is exceptional in that it bears Christopher Wool's hand signature, and date of 2017 on the recto (front), well as the printed signature on the verso (back). Extremely valuable and highly collectible when hand signed, as the normal edition only bears the printed signature. This has both. --Courtesy of Alpha 137 Gallery

About Christopher Wool

Making a name in the New York art scene in the early 1980s, Christopher Wool is best known for his word paintings, white canvases with black stenciled letters spelling out text like "Sell the house, sell the car, sell the kids" (in his 1998 work Apocalypse Now). In his early paintings, Wool used commercial rollers to apply decorative effects on canvas, and he has continued to explore pattern in his art. Incorporating media and techniques including photography, silkscreen, reproduction, overpainting, and erasing, Wool's work often combines human and machine marks, as in his paintings in which he smudges black lines drawn with a spray gun into gray fields.

American, b. 1955, Chicago, Illinois, based in New York, New York
