Alien Workshop has teamed up with key holders to the groundbreaking and legendary artwork collection of artist Andy Warhol. The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc has licensed several of Andy Warhol’s images to be placed on Alien Workshop’s limited-edition pro-skate decks. There are five decks in total featuring Warhol’s Death & Disaster series that has some of his most famous imagery including his directions of Marilyn Monroe and the Campbell Soup can.
“We are delighted to see Andy Warhol’s non-conformist spirit embraced by the talented and creative team at Alien Workshop. These pro decks are a testament to the profound influence Warhol continues to have on our culture,” said Michael Hermann, Director of Licensing at The Andy Warhol Foundation.
The complete set of pro-decks will be shipped via a printed board box packaging inspired by Warhol’s box sculptures from the 1960s.
