The Skateroom is teaming up with Peanuts to celebrate the iconic comic strip’s 70th anniversary in limited-edition style. To mark the occasion, The Skateroom is producing a range of its signature skate decks for the home, with these iterations featuring the work of The Peanuts Global Artist Collective. That’s a group of seven international artists who have reworked iconic Peanuts imagery in their own, unique style. That’s no easy feat. Penning characters like Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Woodstock who are now part of the fabric of popular culture, it’s no surprise that Charles Schulz — the mind behind Peanuts — is regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time.
André Saraiva x Mr. A, Nina Chanel Abney, AVAF, FriendsWithYou, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Rob Pruitt, and Kenny Scharf present their work in the form of two designs per artist: a single deck as well as a triptych. Each edition is numbered up to 100 and is available for a limited time, so don’t sleep.
Not only does this collection provide the perfect first step in creating your own art collection, but it also helps fund projects that aim to empower, protect, and educate vulnerable young people around the world. Using a “5:25” business model — whichever is larger out of 5% of turnover or 25% of every sale’s profit is donated — The Skateroom has so far raised over $700,000 to fund 34 socially engaged skate projects.
