Lot Details

Each deck measure 31.8 x 7.8 x 2 inches (80.8 x 19.8 x 5.1 cm), and all three are in excellent original condition.

These rare transfer-printed plywood skateboard decks by Jeff Koons was produced in collaboration between SUPREME and artist. The decks are in excellent condition, and come in their original shrink-wrap.

Jeff Koons (b. 1955) is an American artist who has emerged as one of the most controversial art world figures of the past 20 years. Like Marcel Duchamp and Andy Warhol, Koons is concerned with the transformation of everyday objects into art. His work merges high culture and kitsch into banal renditions of balloon animals, dogs, and popular icons. Koons insists that there are no hidden meanings in his art, refusing the framework of critical contemplation in favor of immediate, visceral reactions from the public. Over the course of his career, Koons has received numerous awards including the John Singleton Copley Award (2010), the Wollaston Award from the Royal Academy of London (2008), and the Artistic Achievement Award from Americans for the Arts (2006).
