Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei has collaborated with Belgian skateboard-art company The Sk8room to produce three skate decks, each referencing one of Weiwei’s famous artworks. Taking a philosophical route, the decks feature politically-minded slogans printed on top of details of some of Weiwei’s most iconic installations. The decks are available from The Sk8room now, with 20% of profits going towards non-profit skate organisation Skateistan.
