Supreme's New Collection Features Archival Works by Artist Martin Wong

The streetwear brand has teamed up with the late artist’s estate.

Supreme has teamed up with the estate of late artist Martin Wong for a collection, featuring select works by the Chinese-American painter. Wong, who passed away from AIDS-related complications in 1999, is known for his meticulously-rendered paintings immortalizing New York City‘s Loisaida neighborhood and San Francisco‘s Chinatown. The artist lived in Loisaida, a historic Hispanic enclave on the Lower East Side throughout the mid ’80s and met many of his artistic collaborators and influences there. Before his death, Wong also co-founded the now-defunct Museum of American Graffiti and donated his expansive graffiti collection to the Museum of the City of New York.

Wong’s paintings of Loisaida’s brick walk-up buildings are featured on a series of Supreme T-shirts and skateboards. A Rayon shirt and hoodie features the artist’s rendition of a magic eight ball nestled in clouds painted in a style reminiscent of classical Chinese landscapes. The eight ball motif also appears on beanies available in five different colorways. A leather varsity jacket created in collaboration with Schott® is also included in the range.

The Martin Wong x Supreme Fall/Winter 2019 collection will be available online and in-store, starting November 14. Select pieces will be sold in Supreme’s Japan stores and website starting November 16.
