The Sk8room is the first online platform solely dedicated to promoting, selling and producing art on skateboards around the world. They specialise in anything from graffiti and street art to fine art and photography with thousands of decks on offer for collectors and art enthusiasts alike. The art is accessible to all, with work from artists like Banksy, Ryan McGinness and Jeff Koons.
The company's first launch is going to be a collaboration with Belgian street artist Roa. Roa started his art on the bridges and wall of the Belgian streets and continues to paint in abandoned places and industrial areas where the human population have left and abandoned the area to nature. His works are predominantly animal based and can be found in a number of European cities, such as London, Berlin and Barcelona as well as his home town of Ghent. He has created 3 versions of one of his instantly recognisable monochrome animals exclusively for The Sk8room. The decks will be on sale starting today through the site as a limited edition run. Twenty percent of all proceeds from these decks as well as any other purchases will be given to Skateistan, an NGO that works with impoverished youth to empower them through skateboarding around the world. All of the Sk8room decks are unique pieces, hand signed by the artist. If you want to snatch up any of the Sk8room's timeless pieces you can find a a wide variety of decks including limited editions at www.thesk8room.com.
