Robert Longo for Supreme
Robert Longo is an American painter and sculptor born in Brooklyn, New York in 1953.
Longo developed an early fascination with all forms of mass media, especially movies, television, magazines, and comic books which continue to influence his art. Robert Longo's works are filled with deep emotions that are both primitive and at the same time self-conscious. Having studied sculpture, Longo uses graphite like clay, molding it to create images with layered, chiseled lines, that are at once photographic and sculpturesque.
One of the quintessential artists of the 1980s, Longo's "Men in the Cities" series portrays a group of sharply dressed businessmen writhing in contorted agony.
The artist has been the subject of major retrospectives and exhibitions all over the world, and is considered one of the most significant living artists of our time.
Supreme will release a series of three limited edition skateboard decks designed by Robert Longo.
Available in-store and online April 7th. Available in Japan on April 9th.
