ART & COMMERCE///CHRISTOPHER WOOL FOR SUPREME
Expanding upon their highbrow forays into the blue chip art realm, cooler-than-you (and seemingly recession-proof) NYC skate brand SUPREME today launched three new collaborative decks bearing original artwork by the legendary monochromatic abstract painter CHRISTOPHER WOOL (decks launch Saturday, October 4th in Japan). Beginning his career in 1984 with a solo show at Manhattan’s Cable Gallery, the 53-year-old artist who splits his time between the artistic hotbeds of NYC and Marfa, Texas, undoubtedly left urban skate gremlins scratching their heads with this esoteric release, yet still strangely compelled to buy all three decks to later resell on eBay for great profit, all without stopping to ponder the meaning of said graphics. But, then, such is life in this postmodern world. HAVE A LOOK:
