Paul McCarthy Creates Eleven Skateboard Decks for Charity
Posted: Mar 10 2015
Los Angeles contemporary artist Paul McCarthy collaborates with Brussel-based not-for-profit The Skateroom to create a series of skateboards for a charitable project. The ten decks will feature designs from McCarthy’s PROPO series, which includes masks, bottles, dolls, stuffed animals and uniforms the creative has used in prior performance pieces. When the collection is purchased in its entirety, an eleventh deck will be made available. All proceeds will go towards the international NGO Skateistan, which looks to fund the first skate school in Johannesburg, South Africa, helping the region’s underprivileged children.
