Harmony Korine for Supreme Skateboard Decks

Supreme presents their next artist collaboration skateboard deck series, this time working with writer, director, filmmaker and artist Harmony Korine.

“Harmony Korine is a Writer, Director, Filmmaker, and Artist whose work all has a distinct point of view that often highlights youth culture, dysfunctionality, mental disorders, poverty and other social ills. Korine wrote the groundbreaking film Kids, as a teenager living in New York. Among other things Kids depicted the skate scene in New York in the early 90’s, and featured many famed NY skaters including Harold Hunter and Justin Pierce. Korine also wrote and directed Gummo, which caused controversy for its violence and unintelligible style, but won him honors and top prizes at the Venice film festival.

Outside of his film making, Korine is a published author, artist and music video director who has worked with Christopher Wool, Sonic Youth, Cat Power, and Bjork among others.”

Supreme will be releasing two skate decks, featuring original artwork by Harmony Korine. They will be available in their NY, LA and London stores, as well as online, on October 6th. Japan will get them on October 8th.
