    Single Board. Limited Edition of 300. The Skateroom works together with some of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists to produce limited edition artworks on skateboards. Up to 20% of the proceeds are donated to social projects handpicked by artists or directly to different organizations, such as the award winning NGO Skateistan, that use skateboarding as a tool for social change and the empowerment of youth.
    One of the most daring artistic experimenters of the twentieth century, Robert Rauschenberg was born in Texas in 1925. His father was of German and Cherokee ancestry and his mother of Anglo-Saxon descent. Deviating by chance from a career as a pharmacist, Rauschenberg developed a much freer and more irreverent relationship with the past than the more academically structured artists. What interested him throughout his life was the search for his own new and original way to express himself. Undoubtedly he succeeded. Expressionist with colour and Dadaist in mindset, his artistic life was an endless flow of creation. From the White Paintings that inspired John Cage to the Combines in which he incorporated objects into paintings, from stuffed animals that anticipated Damien Hirst to the enamelled bed that preceded Tracey Emin, Rauschenberg’s frenzied imagination ceased only with his death in 2008. Yet his work still continues to sway new generations with its powerful influence.
