If you are acquainted with art of Paul McCarthy, then you’ve come to understand that McCarthy’s art is centered in taking the familiar and banal and fucking it up a little bit, because that is how he rolls. Paul McCarthy and The Skateroom is a collaboration between the artist and the organization that supports non-profit projects that empower children through Skateboarding and Art, which nobody can deny is a truly excellent cause! Here, McCarthy’s provocative and socially critical art celebrates the skateboard as a symbol of youth empowerment and freedom on a deeper level, as proceeds from sales will entirely fund the building of a skateboarding and educational center for vulnerable youth in South Africa, led by international NGO Skateistan, which builds skate parks in poor, traumatized areas of the world.
