Marc McKee's Last Supper, bastard bowl, Milano.

Inaugurated on the main bastard bowl wall last Friday on the occasion of the 20 years of bastard, the Last Supper (Ultima Cena) by Marc McKee can be viewed every day for all the visitors starting Thursday, November 13: at the opening of of our full space for the traditional winter Family Sale upstairs at the bastard store.

The size of the print is 7.5 x 2.10 meters, depicting the most famous characters of Marc, those that marked a whole generation of skaters (including us) and that contributied to form a completely new approach to the contents of graphic communication in the early 90’s.

Here you can find the bastard snowboards built in Italy, the t-shirt and sweatshirt with the famous Jesus (Gabriel Rodriguez), the Cliché skateboards, the rare book WARNING: The Art of Marc McKee and 16 colors silkscreen art print on heavy paper in ultra-limited series of 40 pieces (half of which are reserved for pro skaters depicted in the graphic) coming from California this week …
