The famous skateboarding manufacturer, Skateroom taps into the visuals of The Andy Warhol Foundation to feature the iconic skulls series of 1976 by Andy Warhol. Made from seven-ply grade A Canadian maple wood; printed in various versions, such as blue, pink, white, grey, and peach, the skateboard comes with Andy Warhol's official brand logo as well.
This remarkable piece portrays a human skull resting flat on a surface; it became popular in 1976, particularly in "The Factory" studio in New York. The skulls featured on the Skateroom items were dramatically portraying the manipulated shadows in each visual--inspired by an original b&w image captured by Warhol's assistant.
According to art historians, this remarkable piece of "The Skull" was somehow Warhol's obsessiveness with his on mortality. Interestingly, in a compilation of his Philosophies, Warhol speaks of his disbelief in this particular concept. 'I don't believe in it because you're not around to know that it's happened. I can't say anything about it because I'm not prepared for it,'" --The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (1975)
