Lot description
NYC based lifestyle company, Supreme, collaborated with British artist, Damien Hirst, on a set of their latest skate decks. Damien Hirst has designed 3 exclusive skate decks.

British artist Damien Hirst was born in 1965 in Bristol, England.

During the 1990s Hirst was known as a wild child in the art world and his work embodied both everyday realism and provocative sensationalism. Known for his ironic wit and cultural commentary, Hirst often explores the theme of mortality through a variety of mediums and techniques from installation work, to painting and sculpture.

A series utilizing preserved dead animals suspended in formaldehyde (including a shark, a sheep and a cow) catapulted Hirst to fame amidst controversy. The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living, a 14-foot tiger shark immersed in a glassed display case of formaldehyde became the iconic work of British art in the 1990s. Its sale in 2004 made Hirst the world second most expensive living artist after Jasper Johns.
