As previously previewed from the Supreme Book Vol. 5, the Damien Hirst collaborative skate decks with Supreme had been garnering a lot of attention both online and on ramps. While the British artist catapulted into fame for his series of animals preserved and suspended in formaldehyde, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, Hirst’s wry sense of humor and dark wit carries through in his other work as well.
For his collaboration with New York’s quintessential Supreme, Hirst the decks on his Spot painting, Diethylene Glycol. Playing off medical symbols and colorful dots to examine color, balance and repetition as a form of therapy, the decks are more laden metaphorical weight than your average deck. Take a closer look at the series of five decks due to drop on Nov 19 in store, Nov 21 in Japan and Nov 23 online alongside the Box Logo Tee (also created as a part of the collaborative project with Supreme).
