Note the measurements above apply to each of the three skateboards. These limited edition long sold out vintage skateboards feature one of Damien Hirst’s Spin paintings. The triptych is part of the Damien Hirst for New York based Supreme corporation's skateboard collection. Hirst created this skateboard design exclusively for the New York based Supreme sports company. Hirst's spontaneously made "Spin" paintings, reproduced here by Supreme, stand in stark contrast to the formulaic spot series, yet both explore the idea of an imaginary mechanical painter. Hirst is known for his spin paintings made at random on a spinning circular surface. Damien Hirst is an internationally renowned English artist and has been part of the ‘Young British Artists’, who have dominated the art scene in UK since the 90s.

About Damien Hirst

Damien Hirst first came to public attention in London in 1988 when he conceived and curated "Freeze," an exhibition in a disused warehouse that showed his work and that of his friends and fellow students at Goldsmiths College. In the nearly quarter of a century since that pivotal show (which would come to define the Young British Artists), Hirst has become one of the most influential artists of his generation. His groundbreaking works include The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), a shark in formaldehyde; Mother and Child Divided (1993) a four-part sculpture of a bisected cow and calf; and For the Love of God (2007), a human skull studded with 8,601 diamonds. In addition to his installations and sculptures, Hirst’s Spot paintings and Butterfly paintings have become universally recognized.

British, b. 1965, Bristol, United Kingdom, based in London, United Kingdom
