Did anyone know Jeff Koons was a shredder? Check out the world famous artist’s newly minted Burton snowboards collaboration project (featuring his trademark use of metallic foil) entitled “The Philosopher.” They are only pressing 50 of them, so good luck trying to get your hands on one. And even if you can the board will cost you $5K!
All proceeds from sales of the snowboards will benefit Jake and Donna Carpenter’s The Chill Foundation, which “Uses boardsports to teach life skills and increase self-esteem in our participants.”
Even if you’re not a fine arts fan, you may recognize Koon’s work by his series of giant metallic ballon animals:
