Damien Hirst for Supreme Spot Decks and Box Logo Tee
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.”
