The Self Portrait series by Albert Oehlen are a combination of 8 paintings dating back to 1983. Through each painting, Oehlen respectively alludes to the works of past masters, spanning from Picasso to de Chirico. By flaunting his versatility, Oehlen confirms his skill while leaving a shadow of doubt as to his intentions: homage or sardonic reinterpretations?

 

About the Skateroom:


Our collective future depends upon business ideas becoming a means for building, financing, and implementing systemic solutions to the globe’s most pressing needs. The Skateroom challenges the status quo of brand and corporate responsibility, and turns consumers into active contributors in socially engaged projects. The Skateroom project unites art buyers, artists, galleries, museums, foundations, retailers, patrons, corporates and non-profits around the world in a new economic model -- « Art for Social Impact ».

Our “5:25” business model is simple: we unleash human creativity and the fruits of artistic labor to donate 5% of the turnover or 25% of the profit from every sale – whichever number is greater.


Through our community’s support, we have so far raised over $500,000 to fund 24 social skate projects dedicated to empowering at-risk youth around the world. By placing works of art on responsibly made skateboards, The Skateroom connects people to the reality that Art for Social Impact is something achievable right now.
