We were extremely honored and happily surprised when we got a positive response from Ai Weiwei.
We gave the dissident artist “carte blanche” to decline three of his artworks on skateboards.

The result is a mix of politically engaged messages combined with the equally strong meaning of the three artworks he decided to feature for this special collaboration for Skateistan.

Through this collaboration, we donated 15,000$ to Skateistan in Kabul in the name of the artist, as well as 20% of the sales from this limited edition on skateboards. The equivalent to providing programs for up to 1300 students in Afghanistan for 2 weeks!
