Lempire des lumières, 2018
Father of Belgian surrealism
René Magritte (1898, Lessines – 1967, Schaerbeek, Belgium) was one of the most famous artists of the 20th century. His heritage had an immense influence on pop and conceptual art and it still continues to inspire contemporary artists. Seen as an homage to the father of Belgian surrealism and as an extension of his art to the medium of skateboards, giving it an entirely new meaning – just like Magritte always played with context in his paintings. The three editions of his recognizable oeuvre have been created in close collaboration by The Skateroom with the Fondation Magritte: Décalcomanie, Empire des lumières and Fils de l’homme.
