Tomato Bowl, 2003
Fondation Beyeler, in partnership with THE SKATEROOM and Acquavella Galleries, is proud to present the limited edition Wayne THIEBAUD collection, in aid of Concrete Jungle Foundation’s EduSkate programs around the world.
In tandem with the opening of Fondation Beyeler’s Wayne Thiebaud retrospective exhibition in 2023, THE SKATEROOM has created a collection of limited edition skateboard artworks. The collection features: Fruits, Vegetables, Melons (solo);Tomato Bowl (solo); Jolly Cones (diptych); Three Cones (triptych). These four pieces, each released in a limited run of 100, are celebrations of Thiebaud’s outstanding oeuvre, and exemplify the artist’s mouthwatering, yet somehow bittersweet, depictions of retro Americana confectionery.
Tomato Bowl (2003) harnesses that same sense of nostalgia that Thiebaud has become known for. Rather than sweet confectionery or ice-cream cones, however, here we see the juicy skin of the tomatoes catching the light in an almost mouthwatering way.
By shopping this edition you create change; 10% of all revenue goes towards the incredible EduSkate program, a skateboarding and education curriculum by Concrete Jungle Foundation which empowers at-risk youth around the world.
