    About The Work

    Rhode’s first Skateroom collection is inspired by a number of his outdoor wall artworks created over the past few years. Many of these pieces relate specifically to urban culture - incorporating aspects of modern music or dance. Rhode’s influences also extend beyond this, ranging from his Cape Town upbringing to the cultural act of storytelling within South Africa. Rhode’s collection comprises of five decks, each taking influence from different elements.

    Bones incorporates dance and dominoes, reflecting popular culture and also a game that Rhode played growing up in Cape Town as a child. The chalk and charcoal-like nature of the depiction is a nod to one of Rhode’s early mediums when he created performative wall drawings to reclaim public space.

    Each time The Skateroom produces a new artist, part of the proceeds are donated to Skateistan (, an NGO dedicated to empowering youth through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa, through their innovative programs and Skate Schools.
