Soho Gallery Premieres Hirst, Koons and Murakami Skateboards

Takashi Murakami, Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst custom skateboard decks

Puppies, monkeys and spin paintings: That's what Takashi Murakami (left), Jeff Koons (right) and Damien Hirst (center), respectively, applied to limited edition skateboard decks commissioned by Supreme and, since yesterday, on view at Soho's Clic Gallery. The pieces were unveiled as part of a very strong exhibition, SURF/SKATE, about things people do on moving boards in summer. One thing's for sure: whoever buys these bright babies won't be riding them ever, no matter the season—big day for commercializing superstar artists, though, huh? (ANIMAL)
