In 2009 Supreme worked together with UK Contemporary Artist Damien Hirst.
Within his wide variety of art disciplines Hirst explores the dual complexity and simplicity of life.
Often times depicting death in his works of art.
In 2009 the Artist considered to be the wealthiest in the UK with a net worth estimated over $270 Million worked with Supreme on a holiday collection.
The collaboration is know for the famous decks and this matching box logo t-shirt.
The words “Lifes a bitch and then u die” cover the rear end of the piece serving as a direct reference to both his ever existing fascination with life and death and the New York rapper Nas who famously said these words on his iconic “Nas illmatic” project in 1994. “Lifes a b*tch and then you die - thats why we get high - because you never know when you’re gonna go”.
A decade after the crossing of these two living cultural breeds this t-shirt is representative of this collection where a New York skate brand and a UK Artist made a very memorable iconic collaboration.
