Described as both “a painter and a prankster,” artist Mark Flood’s works are often dark in both appearance and theme. Best known for his contribution to Culturcide, a post-punk band out of Houston, Texas, and his spray-painted bold lettering that asked his viewers to “Commit Suicide” or “Masturbate Often,” Flood’s tendency to be a disruptive force will now be on display as part of Supreme’s artist collaboration. Available as two skate decks lacquered in black, with the undersides featuring stenciled texts--“Mom Died” or “Dad Died”--against the graphic of freshly paved asphalt, the rather blunt statements are also a declaration of sadness and the finality that we all have to die one day.
Both decks will be available starting this Thursday, May 29th, through Supreme’s retail locations in New York, Los Angeles and London. The collaborative works will also be available via Supreme’s online store, followed by its stores across Japan on Saturday, May 31st.
