YOSHITOMO NARA 'Welcome Girl' Skateboard Deck

'Welcome Girl' by Yoshitomo Nara, 2017
Skateboard Deck from Nara x MOMA.
8 x 31.5 Inches
Silkscreen print on 7-ply Canadian maple, hardwood skateboard deck.
New in shrinkwrap with original COA card.


This skateboard features a reproduction of the artwork Welcome Girl (2017) by Japanese painter, sculptor and draughtsman Yoshitomo Nara, an artist represented in MoMA’s collection. Made in Canada of 7-ply maple wood. Since the mid-1990s, Japanese born artist Yoshitomo Nara has become known for this playful yet bold images, his mindfulness in determining how and where his art will be seen and for the close personal connection to his art’s creation. Nara selects colors that breathe life into his figures; his sculptures bear traces of his fingers, and the spontaneity of his drawings are born of a daily discipline of experimentation.


Since the mid-1990s, Yoshitomo Nara, an artist represented in MoMA’s collection, has exhibited around the world, working with a range of institutions he feels a strong affinity with. His approach to art-making is similarly dependent on his sense of connection to the process of creating—his paintings are expressions of colors that breathe life into his bold images; his sculptures bear traces of his fingers that have shaped their forms; and his drawings, a daily practice, capture the spontaneity of thoughts.

Yoshitomo Nara Makes the Coolest Skateboards

Surface x MoMA Design Store

Embellished with the Japanese artist’s sweet, scrappy girls, these decks stand out from the rest.

October 16, 2017

Yoshitomo Nara's white "Welcome Girl" (2017) and red "Solid First" (2017) skateboards.

Yoshitomo Nara is unafraid of tackling life’s big questions. His layered artwork, which typically depicts cartoonish girls plagued by grown-up thoughts, evokes feelings of isolation and rebellion with refreshing frankness. Such universally shared emotions have won him many fans, and permit his imagery to be equally successful in a gallery, on a T-shirt, or on the pages of a children’s book. It’s this accessible, egalitarian quality of Nara’s work that’s most compelling, and also what enabled his recent project: a pair of skateboard decks, available exclusively at the MoMA Design Store. (Currently on backorder, the boards will be back in stock in mid-November.)

The MoMA Design Store first floated the idea of a collaboration to the Japanese artist about two years ago. They embarked on the design process together, where Nara was exceptionally hands-on—he selected the materials, colors, and manufacturers himself. Made in Canada from seven-ply maple wood, each skateboard features an artwork created by the artist earlier this year. A milky white board, titled “Welcome Girl,” depicts one of Nara’s scrappy, brooding girls, while a red board, called “Solid Fist,” features a more sinister youngster standing atop a skull and crossbones.

Nara’s admirers will recognize these irresistibly angsty creatures. “His work is playful and translates remarkably [well] on a certain type of object,” says MoMA’s director of merchandising, Emmanuel Plat, who worked with Nara on the collaboration. “His art is trans-generational.” Nara draws from his own experience growing up in Hirosaki in post-World War II Japan, where music and animals provided solace in the midst of loneliness. Today, the Museum of Modern Art holds more than 150 of Nara’s works in its collection. Pieces like “It ain’t always easy” (1992–2000) or “Untitled” (2000), showcase the cute but captivating emotional directness that’s defined Nara’s work since he began exhibiting in Japan and Europe in the 1980s.

Next year, Nara and MoMA will introduce another collection that will include pencils, band-aids, and a range of paper goods. It’s the largest collaboration he’s developed with an institution in recent years. But the extent of the project speaks to a more overarching takeaway of Nara’s work—that all of us carry around childhood experiences, and having them referenced on everyday objects is a heartening reminder of what’s shaped us.

Yoshitomo NARA

Yoshitomo Nara is a Japanese artist best known for his paintings of children and animals that appear simultaneously sweet and sinister. A contemporary of Takashi Murakami, Nara has been influenced by popular culture in both Eastern and Western society. His versatile practice explores themes of isolation, rebellion, and spirituality through printmaking, painting, sculpture, ceramics, and installations.

Born in 1959 in Hirosaki, Japan, Yoshitomo Nara studied at the Aichi Prefectural University of Fine Arts and Music, where he earned both his BFA and MFA, and later at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf during the late 1980s. He currently lives and works in Tokyo. The artist’s works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Museum of Art in Osaka, and the Rubell Family Collection in Miami, among others.

To raise funds for social skateboarding projects benefiting at-risk youth, The Skateroom and Yoshitomo NARA bring you 3 time-limited editions featuring the artist’s trademark neo-pop visuals during a large solo exhibition at the LACMA (Los Angeles). This exhibition will also travel around the globe to the Yuz Museum (Shanghai, China), the Museo Guggenheim (Bilbao, Spain), and the Kunsthal (Rotterdam, Netherlands).

Through our collaborations with Yoshitomo Nara, we aim to raise $50,000 to fund the construction of Skateistan’s Skate School in Bamyan, Afghanistan.
