American contemporary artist George Condo is the latest creative to link-up with Supreme on their popular art meets skateboard deck program. Originally born in Concord, New Hampshire, the New York-based artist creates three separate designs for the spring/summer season. Having shared the scene with such influential New York artists such as Haring, Basquiat and Schnabel, the artist’s “Artificial Realism” has become his trademark aesthetic. Condo’s inspirations include popular iconography as well as sources including “Playboy, European history, Greek mythology and American caricature for his dark, painterly and humorous work.” The collection of decks will release on May 6th in the US/online and May 8th in Japan.

George Condo is an American contemporary visual artist born in Concord, New Hampshire in 1957. He currently lives and works in New York City.

Condo arrived in New York in the early 80s where he and contemporaries such as Schnabel, Basquiat and Haring were instrumental in an international revival of painting. For the past three decades, Condo has continued to explore the realm of portraiture and psychological landscape in a distinctive style dubbed ‘Artificial Realism’. Inspired by traditional techniques and popular iconography, Condo borrows inspiration from sources as disparate as Playboy, European history, Greek mythology and American caricature for his dark, painterly and humorous work.

Supreme will release a series of three limited edition skateboard decks designed by George Condo.

Available in-store and online May 6th. Available in Japan on May 8th.
