Supreme vs Robert Longo
Share this article with friends
Skateboarding has come a long way from 'Lords of Dogtown' slackers. So there's no surprise that skateboard companies such as Supreme, are moving into more sophisticated areas of design. Supreme has collaborated with the famous painter and sculptor Robert Longo and have come up with some slick looking boards, too bad these were not around when I was breaking people's steps.
Longo became famous in the 1980s for his "Men in the Cities" series, which depicted sharply dressed businessmen writhing in contorted emotion.
Although I have to say I'm not sure I would have the heart to actually use these boards, I'd probably have them hanging on my wall instead. Either way they look great and although they are only available in Japan, I'm sure you can get them online also.
So to all skaters out there, enjoy and for god sake don't grind any rails with these boards.
