About The Skateroom x Andy Warhol – Flowers Skateboard Triptych – Green/Pink
The Flower series is one of Andy Warhol’s most successful projects. A departure from his usual representation of brands, the series is based on a photograph of hibiscus blossoms that he found in a magazine titled Modern Photography. According to art critic David Bourdon, Warhol’s vibrant manipulation of colors produces a floating effect in his flowers, “like cut-out gouaches by Matisse set adrift on Monet’s lily pond.” It is also said that the Flower series gave rise to the expression “flower power”, against the backdrop of the massive non-violence movement during the 1960’s. These groundbreaking works are the inspiration for this series of skate decks, where each color has been produced in a limited edition of 500.
This exclusive skateboard triptych made in collaboration between The Skateroom and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts mix the energies of underground culture and legendary artists.

About Andy Warhol
Easily one of the most recognizable and influential artists of the second half of the twentieth century, Andy Warhol created some of the most easily popular pieces of art ever produced. Challenging idealism and personal emotions conveyed by not only the abstractionist movements but by previous, more historical movements, Warhol embraced popular culture and was one of the founding fathers of the Pop Art movement. Art was never really thought of as a popular consumer product before Warhol, and he opened the world up to mass-production and mass-appeal.
