Art of the Skateboard Stamp Sheet
Sold as a Full Sheet of 20 Art of the Skateboard stamps or Framed Stamps.
Crystal Worl, co-founder of Trickster Company, is the artist of one of the four stamp designs featured on this stamp sheet. Her stamp is the blue and indigo formline sockeye salmon. Sheets are shipped in clear cello and sandwiched between two 50pt chipboards to minimize any bending.
The bold artwork emblazoned on a skateboard deck is often as eye-catching and individualistic as a skater’s most breathtaking moves. These four stamps celebrate the Art of the Skateboard with vibrant designs that capture skateboarding’s excitement and reflect the diversity and influences of the four artists whose work is featured.
On a pane containing five rows of four stamps, each skateboard appears once per row. Each subsequent row begins by repeating the last stamp from the previous row, creating a staggered arrangement of designs.
Alaskan Crystal Worl reflects her Indigenous Tlingit/Athabascan heritage with a blue and indigo salmon rendered in formline, the striking curvilinear design style of the northern Northwest Coast.
A bold graphic abstraction embellishes a deck by self-taught Virginia artist William James Taylor Junior. His skateboard features a design of red lines and curves against an orange background.
Arizona native and expert skateboarder Di’Orr Greenwood created a skateboard design with paint, artistic woodburning, and inlaid crushed turquoise. Her Navajo culture is further reflected on a deck featuring eagle feathers and a colorful burst in hues evoking a rising or setting sun.
A black, white, and gold jaguar design is the work of muralist MasPaz (Federico Frum), a Colombian native raised in the Washington, D.C., area. The largest cat in the Americas, the jaguar symbolizes authority and power in the art and lore of Indigenous peoples.
Art director Antonio Alcalá designed the stamps.
