Objects ‘Trumpet Skateboards’, by Jean-Michel Basquiat

€550

On this Black Friday we’re forgoing the sales, instead suggesting gifts that give back to communities in need of support. Art-loving skaters shouldn’t go without this triptych of boards bearing Jean-Michel Basquiat’s 1984 work, Trumpet. Inspired by his passion for jazz, it features classic Basquiat hallmarks, such as a stick figure and crossed out letters. Perhaps more suited to a wall than a half pipe, it’s one of many artist editions sold by The Skateroom, which puts a share of its profits towards empowering youth around the world, building new skateparks and developing education facilities.
