Skateboarding has come a long way as an industry. Gone are the days of ripping off popular art for graphics and thinking no one is going to notice. Now days if you want to have Andy Warhol art on your boards you have to contact the Andy Warhol Foundation For The Visual Arts. The good news is that skateboarding as such a cultural and economic powerhouse these days they are likely to say yes. That’s what makes these boards by Alien Workshop so special because the people at the foundation don’t license Warhol’s work to just anyone.
One of Warhol’s most famous quotes is “art is what you can get away with”.
