The Guilt of Gold Teeth, 1982
We are delighted to present new skateboard editions by Jean-Michel Basquiat on the occasion of our exhibition “Basquiat. The Modena Paintings”.
In the summer of 1982, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) travelled to Modena in Italy. Gallery owner Emilio Mazzoli had invited the artist to produce new works on site for a solo exhibition. Within a few days, Basquiat painted eight large-format canvases, some of them now among his most celebrated and valuable works. More than 40 years later, all the “Modena Paintings” are being displayed together for the very first time.
Fondation Beyeler, in partnership with THE SKATEROOM, is proud to breathe a new life into the extremely rare “Modena Paintings”, and reintroduce them as a special collection of skateboard art decks.
With your purchase, you are supporting social skate projects around the world: At least 10% of all revenue at THE SKATEROOM goes to various social organizations.
Christmas special: We are pleased to offer you three skateboard editions of Jean-Michel Basquiat's rare "Modena Paintings" for the special price of 550 Swiss francs, just in time for Christmas (until 31 December 2023).
