Invader x Mekanism Skateboards

"Paris-based skateboard company Mekanism invited Space Invader—the French graffiti artist known for his mosaics—once again to have his way with their decks. Expanding on the limited edition turquoise and red mosaic print that Invader came up with on their first collaboration (back in '05), there's only one per edition and they're made with actual tiles. Matrix (pictured right) duplicates the original design, adding mirror eyes, while "Above the City" (left) is made of black and white mini tiles and "Rubik" continues Invaders' more recent habit of repurposing Rubik's cubes. They're all available through their site and you can see more images here." - cool hunting
