A pair of Japan’s finest contemporary artists, Takashi Murakami and Mr., have collaborated withSupreme on an upcoming series of skate decks. Ironically, Mr. was previously mentored by none other then Murakami himself. Murakami’s signature “Superflat” style is a melding of both high and low art, effectively blurring the lines. Mr.’s style is perhaps best described as a manga meets sexuality style of art. Together both of these marquee artists have captivated the attention of many art lovers around the world. The series will include a set of 3 skate decks designed by each artist. The decks will be available at Supreme locations in Los Angeles, New York and Japan (4 locations) as well as select Supreme retailers.
In other important news, Supreme will launch their new online shop later this week, on Thursday, September 20th after 11:00 am EST.
