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. Having studied sculpture, Longo uses graphite like clay, molding it to create images with layered, chiseled lines, that are at once photographic and sculpturesque. 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 have teamed up with Longo to release a series of three limited edition skateboard decks designed by Robert Longo. They will be available in-store and online April 7th and available in Japan on April 9th.
