Before Basquiat rose to become one of the most significant artists of the 20th century, his work was already legendary on the streets of downtown NYC. Under the tag SAMO, his poetic and poignant symbols established a visual vocabulary that continues to inspire new generations of graffiti artists to this day. Needless to say, we are very happy with the final results and we hope we’ve made him proud.

That’s why we devote great attention to the sourcing of our boards and aim to work exclusively with Grade A Maple from certified sustainable forests in Canada. In addition, our packaging is made from recycled materials and supporting products chosen to limit impact on the environment.
The Skateroom also offsets its carbon emissions and proudly wears the CO2-neutral® label: we compensate for our entire yearly carbon footprint through the independent audit company CO2logic."
