Paul Gauguin Skateboard Triptyc
Warning: Last items in stock!
This exclusive limited edition of 100 Paul Gauguin Skateboard Deck Triptych featuring his notorious work When Will You Marry? Nafea Faa Ipoipo (1892). Sold at Sotheby’s auction house in 2015 for around $300 million USD to a Qatari buyer, Gauguin’s work made a record as one of the most expensive paintings sold. Painted during the time Gauguin was living in Tahiti, the artwork represents the two native Tahitian women as the central figures of the artwork. The two Tahitian women are situated within a terrestrial idyllic paradise, devoid of any sight of European civilization. The young woman dressed in traditional Tahitian garments, wears a flower to signal that she is available for marriage. The traditional bright Tahitian garments of the young woman in the foreground contrast the motherly woman sitting behind her in traditional Western clothing, thus alluding to the influence of French Colonization in the lives of the Tahitian natives. The naïve style of the outlines and vibrancy of Gauguin’s color application evidence his ideas of Synthetism and primitive art, where color, the subject, and other elements are means through which the invisible, the idea primes above all else. Although Gauguin was disappointed to find that French colonization destroyed his fantasy of living in an entirely non-industrialized society, he still allowed himself to reimagine the idyllic, native Tahitian paradise dwelling in his dreams.
