The skateboard palette, emblazoned with the Supreme logo so coveted by brand hunters, was purchased for a client by ex-gallery owner John Satin. The deal was made through eBay, Artnet reports.

For the creation of the Supreme Mundi art skate, Wilson was inspired, firstly, by the auction result of Christie's in New York in 2017, where the Salvator Mundi painting was sold for $ 450 million, and secondly, by the constant drops of limited collections, for which hypebeasts are lining up and thirdly, 17-year-old Canadian Carson Guo, who paid $ 800,000 for a collection of 248 Supreme skateboards.

The British artist ironically asked the public to imagine that his work included the same color palette used by the restorers of the Salvator Mundi painting.

“Christie's put up da Vinci's canvas at a contemporary art auction alongside Basquiat's work, and I had to find an excuse to get my skateboard palette to resonate with modern fashionistas,” added Wilson, noting that they “represent a new era of young rich -collectors more interested in online popularity than in art history."

The underside of the skateboard features the Supreme logo - white letters on a red background. The artist slightly changed the typeface, but not to the detriment of the result - I will attack the American brand.

During a two-week eBay auction, the skateboard was displayed at New York's Con Artist Collective, where it was stored in a specially crafted box that opened only on demand. However, the skateboard is "fully functional," Wilson says. "It was run on the sidewalks of the Lower East Side.">
