Introduction

René Magritte

Considered as the father of (Belgian) surrealism, René Magritte’s paintings challenge the observers’ preconditioned perceptions of reality. His mode of representation seems voluntarily neutral and academic, yet it helps to highlight a powerful work that questions reality and brings a new meaning to familiar objects and things we took for granted. Magritte’s body of work has directly influenced Pop Art and contemporary artists like John Baldessari, Ed Ruscha and Andy Warhol.

The Skateroom

The Skateroom is a platform for promoting, selling, and producing art on skateboards in order to support youth-empowerment and development. Proceeds from this project will benefit Skateistan, an award-winning, international NGO with projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. Skateistan is the first international development initiative to combine skateboarding with educational outcomes.
