Jules DE BALINCOURT is known internationally for colorful, radiant paintings that meditate on the social, political, and cultural dynamics of an increasingly globalized world. Limited edition and hand-signed, THE SKATEROOM is proud to present de Balincourt’s ‘New Arrivals’ is one such meditation, described by the artist himself as a reference to growing up in California. Reminiscent of Hockney’s pools, Jules claims to have a less optimistic view than Hockney – this is no longer the hopefulness of the 60s/70s. Today, there is an environmental catastrophe, mortgage foreclosures; this is generation X’s interpretation of the pool as an icon. But this is for the viewer to interpret for themselves.
This art piece is released as a hand-signed triptych skateboard, in an edition size of 50.
