    About The Work

    Considered one of the most prolific Japanese artists of all time, photographer Nobuyoshi Araki creates work that is as nuanced as it is subversive, nostalgic as it is erogenous. Primarily known for his controversial, highly sexualized images of women, Araki has published over 450 photo books on subjects ranging from his birthplace of Tokyo, to his late wife (essayist Yōko Araki) on their honeymoon. In this edition created for Skateroom, Flower Tryptic, Araki erotically depicts the center of a pink orchid, in one image stretched across three decks. 


    Each time The Skateroom produces a new artist, part of the proceeds are donated to Skateistan (, an NGO that works with youth from Afghanistan and Cambodia, building trust and providing empowerment and skills through a combination of skateboarding and educational activities.
