Another sick collab!

Damien Hirst and Supreme re-visit their old relationship in the upcoming release of a series of skateboard decks. In addition to the similarly styled decks comes a t-shirt as well with the slogan “Life’s a Bitch Then You DIE” on the back with the theme of the decks seen on the front graphic. The collection releases in-store in the US on November 19th and online on November 23rd. Japan will see a release on November 21st.

British artist Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol, England.

During the 1990s Hirst was known as a wild child in the art world and his work embodied both everyday realism and provocative sensationalism. Known for his ironic wit and cultural commentary, Hirst often explores the theme of mortality through a variety of mediums and techniques from installation work, to painting and sculpture.

A series utilizing preserved dead animals suspended in formaldehyde (including a shark, a sheep and a cow) catapulted Hirst to fame amidst controversy. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, a 14-foot tiger shark immersed in a glassed display case of formaldehyde became the iconic work of British art in the 1990s. Its sale in 2004 made Hirst the world’s second most expensive living artist after Jasper Johns.

Hirst is known for his iconic graphic Spot paintings that depict rows of randomly-colored circles. Supreme will release a series of five individually designed decks and a Box Logo tee designed by Damien Hirst featuring his Spot paintings.

Available in-store November 19th and online November 23rd. Available in Japan on November 21st.

“Your Mercury Ocean” is the name of this skateboard designed by Olafur Eliasson. It’s another collaboration between Mekanism and artist / designer Olafur. It has 13-ply deck instead of a standard 7-ply. This extra thickness gave him the possibility to mill a 3d pattern on it. Afterwards, the deck received a mirror coating.
