Film maker, author, music video director and artist Harmony Korine teams up with skatecentric fashion brand Supreme to create two new skate boards. Known for his real-life look into ’90s skate culture with the film Kids, Harmony has continued his legacy of confrontational storytelling with the provocative Gummo, as well as his work with Björk, Cat Power and Sonic Youth to name a few.
His collaboration with Supreme, who lined up some fairly impressive collaborations themselves in the past few years (with artists like Jeff Koons, Takashi Murakami, George Condo, and Damien Hirst) seems a long time coming, but we will finally see his two skateboards drop this week at all Supreme locations. Each street deck features original artwork from the filmmaker. Two of them feature a silhouetted image of an individual, while the other two have more of a monochromatic tone. Overall, the design is impressive and brings a mysterious, artsy feel that’s rarely seen in skateboard graphics. More here.
