The artwork selected for this deck was originally featured in Ai Weiwei’s “Study of Perspective” series. Here, the artist openly attacks institutions, landmarks, and monuments around the world by giving them his middle finger – an encouragement for the viewer to question their acceptance towards authority. Ultimately, the artist pledges his stance in support of free speech, seeking to empower the people through democratic values within society. For this specific photograph, he takes a shot at The White House and reveals his true feelings on the current political climate in the United States. (from theskateroom.com)
