The Skateroom has teamed up with contemporary Chinese artist and political activist Ai Weiwei for the second time, to launch a limited edition deck of his influential artwork “Study of Perspective – White House”. This new limited edition is based on Ai Weiwei’s provocative artwork that was presented during a controversial art exhibition "Fuck Off" which ran alongside the Third Shanghai Biennale in 2000. The first 66 editions come with a certificate hand signed by the artist.
About the Collection
"Study of Perspective – White House" is an iconic example of a larger body of work by Ai Weiwei that melds art and activism, and is an overt critical response to the current political climate in the United States. Study of Perspective, a series of images shot between 1995 and 2003, shows the artist flipping the finger against different buildings across the globe, either landmarks or symbols of authority. The gesture, captured using a snapshot aesthetic, confronts its viewer with a universal and concise statement of Ai Weiwei's political opposition.
