Carrying on with their prolific collaboration from earlier in the year, Supreme and renowned contemporary artist Damien Hirst link up for a second go round, this time utilizing Hirst’s popular spot technique. A new set of decks are adorned by multi-colored spots with backside graphic symbols and a tee sporting the phrase: “Life’s a Bitch Then You DIE” on the back with a traditional box logo front in spot format. The decks look to retail for ¥14,700 (Approx. $160 USD) and tee for ¥7,350 (Approx. $80 USD). Both are part of Supreme’s 2009 Fall/Winter campaign.
“Id done a tattoo for a friend of mine in a band and he’s got a tattoo of spots. I keep teasing him that some guy is gonna cut his arm off and put it in some formaldehyde. [laughs] Yeah, eBay, arm on eBay. Sell that arm on eBay”.
“I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like. Ive done some skateboards for Supreme and I guess its art you can ride.”
