Lot description
Unique, painted skateboard by graffiti artist Zephyr.

Dubbed “The elder-statesman of graffiti” by the New York Times in 1995, Zephyr began creating artwork in 1975 and first signed using the name "Zephyr" in 1977. He was part of the first wave of New York City graffiti artists to make the transition from applying tags, throw-ups, and full scale murals to subway cars and buildings, to exhibiting in galleries. Zephyr is best known for redesigning his trademark name, “Zeph” or “Zephyr.” He is a veteran of New York’s FunGallery, which also included graffiti legends Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Kenny Scharf.
