Last week we gave you a quick preview, today we can give you the official announcement of the George Condo for Supreme skateboard decks.
“George Condo is an American contemporary visual artist born in Concord, New Hampshire in 1957. He currently lives and works in New York City.
Condo arrived in New York in the early 80s where he and contemporaries such as Schnabel, Basquiat and Haring were instrumental in an international revival of painting. For the past three decades, Condo has continued to explore the realm of portraiture and psychological landscape in a distinctive style dubbed ‘Artificial Realism’. Inspired by traditional techniques and popular iconography, Condo borrows inspiration from sources as disparate as Playboy, European history, Greek mythology and American caricature for his dark, painterly and humorous work.”
Supreme will release a set of 3 skateboard decks designed by George Condo. They will release at Supreme stores and online on May 6th.
Many detailed images of the decks follow after the jump.
