‘Skate or Die - Roses are Dead’ is a limited edition skate deck, designed by contemporary artist Magnus Gjoen in collaboration with Skateptych. Crafted from Canadian Maple Wood, the board is digitally signed and hand numbered by the artist and comes with a certificate of authenticity. From a limited edition of 56.
Magnus Gjoen - former designer for Vivienne Westwood - knows a thing or two about style. Having recently turned his hand to the art of print making, Gjoen creates images that are full of startling beauty as well as a profundity of thought: his art explores the interaction between power and fragility, juxtaposing the two states for maximum conceptual effect.
Gjoen’s work blends a range of styles, incorporating a street and pop aesthetic into a fine art approach. For ‘Skate or Die - Roses are Dead’ Gjoen has collaborated with Skateptych, the contemporary concept brand, bringing together skate and art mediums, to create limited edition decks, each printed with designs by acclaimed contemporary artists.
Gjoen’s edition depicts Baroque-style roses on the black underside of a bright red board. In the centre, Gjoen has overlaid a black skull, onto which the floral print spills, highlighting the gossamer line between life and death.
Brilliantly iconic, ‘Skate or Die - Roses are Dead’ seamlessly merges the worlds of skate and art to exceptional success.
