Launched, during Art Market in San Francisco (27 – 30 April 2017), 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: The White House.

 

Study of Perspective: The 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.

AI WEIWEI

Born in: Asia

Ai Weiwei (Beijing, China, 1957) heads a wave of avant-garde artists digging deep into Chinese government corruption through conceptual work. Weiwei uses hangers and other common objects for his political reflections, also implementing precious materials, such as Carrara marble. Despite his criticism putting him on tense terms with the Chinese government, Weiwei was granted the 2008 Chinese Contemporary Art Award for Lifetime Contribution. His original artwork, sculptures, and curations, have been displayed internationally, and the artist continues to expose political injustice through his social media accounts.
