Lot description
This lot is for two complete sets of skateboard decks that were produced collaboration between SUPREME and famous British artist, Damien Hirst. Hirst's 'Spot' and ‘Spin’ series are some of the most recognizable patterns from the artists oeuvre and interestingly define the interaction between color and space as well as work to illustrate the fine line between chaos and control. Past years have seen collaborations of Supreme with some of contemporary art’s biggest names, such as Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, Marilyn Minter and Christopher Wool, who have all done screenprinted wooden decks. Both sets are sealed in original plastic wrap and are in excellent condition, with each deck signed by the artist and stamped by the Publisher.

Note: The Spot Decks will ship from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The Spin Decks will ship from Bangkok, Thailand where the owner resides.

Contemporary British artist Damien Hirst’s (b.1965) œuvre is at once abstract, conceptual, romantic, baroque and minimal. Hirst, winner of the 1995 prestigious Tate Gallery Turner Prize, has been the most prominent and notorious member of the young British artists (YBAs). While still a student at Goldsmith's College in 1988, he curated the now renowned student exhibition, Freeze, featuring his friends' and his own work, and held in East London. With this exhibition, Hirst brought together a group of young artists who would come to define cutting-edge contemporary art in the 1990s. Hirst's work has generated enormous controversy, in part for its morbidity and fascination with medicine, which is evident in several of his series: the encased dead animals in various states of preservation, the incorporation of butterfly wings into stained glass-like images, cabinets filled with pharmaceuticals, and diamond-encrusted skulls. His art challenges the boundaries between high and low culture, art and science, and addresses the big questions of life, love, and death.
