These very popular skate decks have been selling at auction for up to $5,500 USD. This set of three of skate decks features images from Jean-Michel Basquiat's 1983 painting "In Italian", which is a quasi-religious diptych that displays inflamed and mostly indecipherable commentary. (Edition unknown.) Vague references to Italy and its language may be in part due to the major role the country and a handful of Italians played in the artist's career. These skate decks are brand new come in the original shrink wrap, and was created under the auspices of the Estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
