From cartoon references to psychedelic imagery, there is always a wide range of skateboarding decks available to consumers. To extend the inspiration to contemporary art, MoMA partners up with celebrated creative Yayoi Kusama for a collection that has been graced by the artist's 'Dot Obsession' and 'Yellow Trees' paintings.
Needless to say, the skateboarding decks are exquisite. The rich colors and abstraction positively contribute to the overall aesthetic, blurring the boundaries between the urban sport and contemporary art — an act that pro skater Mark Gonzales has been working on for decades.
While the Dot Obsession skateboarding decks "appear in a quartet of different makes," the Yellow Trees is reimagined as a triptych. The MoMA x Kusama collaboration can also double as engaging wall art.
