rubik deck

After their collaboration in 2005, Mekanism and Invader joined forces again. This time Invader created three original and unique skateboards for Mekanism. Each deck is covered by a mosaic made of real tiles and is signed, titled, dated and comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

 

"Matrix deck” is the first out of the three original and unique skateboards created by Invader for Mekanism. It’s composed of the same red and blue tiles used in 2005 by Invader to create the original mosaic that was photographed and printed on each of the 100 Mekanism/Invader limited-edition skateboards. The eyes of the space invaders on “Matrix deck” are composed of mirror tiles.

 

“Above the city deck” is the second out of the three original and unique skateboards created by Invader for Mekanism. It’s composed of black and white micro tiles.

 

“Rubik deck” is the third out of the three original and unique skateboards created by Invader for Mekanism. It’s composed of tiles taken from rubik’s cubes.

Après notre collaboration de 2005, Invader a créé trois skateboards originaux et uniques pour Mekanism. Chaque planche est recouverte d’une vraie mosaïque et est signée, titrée, datée et accompagnée d’un certificat d’authenticité signé par l’artiste.

 

“Matrix deck” est recouverte des mêmes carreaux bleus et rouges utilisés en 2005 par Invader pour créer la mosaïque originale qui a été prise en photo et imprimée sur chacun des 100 skateboards Mekanism/Invader produits l’année dernière. Les yeux des space invaders sur “Matrix deck” sont en miroir.

 

“Above the city deck” est recouverte de micro carreaux de mosaïque noirs et blancs.

 

“Rubik deck” est recouverte de carreaux provenant de rubik’s cubes.

 

Les trois oeuvres sont disponibles à partir d’aujourd’hui sur le site de Mekanism www.mekanismskateboards.com
