The greatest work of the Middle Ages does a kick flip

Boom-Art is already known for putting beautiful ladies on skateboard decks. From 1970s Pin-Up Girls and Snow White Gangbangs to Gardens Of Earthly Delights, Boom-Art has this time moved onto a far more refined dame: La Dame à la Licorne (aka The Lady & the Unicorn). To capture the heavy detail from the classic work of French medieval art, the tapestry had to be […]

One of New York's top street photographers gets grinding

A New York union is complete. NYC-bred Hopps Skateboards is gracing the face of two photo-printed decks with the work of Ricky Powell, a man celebrated as one of New York’s top street photographers (and alleged Beastie Boys towel-thrower).

A brutal, undead revision of the classic strategic war game

I keep thinking that it would be good to get a board game night going again.

Ashley Sky, Iesha Marie & Valeria Orsini for Spring/Summer

Photographer Van Styles shoots three of his favorite models for the latest skateboard deck collection for Los Angeles’ Primitive. Dubbed their “MIA/LA” collection, the series features the very easy on the eyes trifecta of Ashley Sky, Iesha Marie and Valeria Orsini in various states of undress, playing on the beach and enjoying an evening smoke.

Limited edition boards signed by the Belgian street artist

Clearly the market for art-focused skateboard decks is a rapidly growing one, with seemingly new high end collector’s editions coming out monthly. Just last Friday we showed Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden Of Earthly Delights Skateboard Decks from Boom-Art, who’ve been making limited edition (and somewhat ribald) art decks for a minute. Now a new company is […]

Silkscreened by hand in France & limited to only 80 pieces

Niche art/skateboard conflaters Boom-Art have done a remarkable job fusing what were once disparate universes, adding not a small amount of kitsch sexiness to the medium with their their 1970s Pin-Up Girl Skateboards and Disney Orgy Skate Decks. For their latest amazing design, Boom-Art have decided to go high brow and use the works of […]
