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. Leonardo Da Vinci would be proud but we locals are truly honored!
The Last Supper is a collaborative effort between bastard, Marc McKee and Cliché Skateboards. 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 …
In the Spring bastard Jammin’ collection we collaborated with two photographers that contributed to keep the Italian skateboarding media alive in the late nineties and early 2000s.
Giuliano Berarducci doesn’t need any intro, having documented almost everything happen in bastard, just look at his website, giulianoberarducci.com to find some of the most epic bastard store shots. Gabriele Lopez has photographed the skateboarding and hardcore scene during the 90’s, then he started a more artistic path documented on his personal book “Stories by Gabriele Lopez”.
Our friend and co-worker Motoki Yoshio, beside working as designer and teaching since many years, knows how to draw with a ballpoint pen. For bastard he digged deeper at the roots of lucky and dissected one of the most iconic objects of japanese culture: maneki-neko.
You can still find his super limited Neko t-shirt in some shops and of course in our own bastard store. Good luck!
2501 celebrates the bastard spring summer 2014 collection with this cool black and white lined artwork called Flamingo, available on t-shirt and sweatshirts at the bastard store.
Recently in Perth Australia painting for a convention called “PUBLIC” and organized by FormWa Gallery. He painted two enormous scale walls that are both impressive as usual… and he touched our hearts with the Fremantle mural dedicated to the loving memory of Claudio KADO Sinatti .

We asked Pietro Sedda to develop a graphic of one of our snowboards and we get the result that we were dreaming.
If you are into the tattoo scene the name Pietro Sedda will sound familiar.
Nowadays, permanent skin ink has been accepted and mainstreamed.
This, however, doesn’t affect Pietro Sedda: he’s an artist by nature, only guilty of having chosen ink and skin as his tools to express his personal vision.
The Sedda snowboard is available at the bastard store.
We have been waiting for four years the comeback of Jim Houser in Milan! Here we go: A position on a map opens at Galleria Patricia Armocida in Milan, Tuesday Jan 21 at 7:00PM.

We share a lot with Rough Snowboards, we are both italian, we are both a snowboard company, we are small but we tend to think big, but the most important thing that we have in common is that we deeply believe in the Do It Yourself way of life.
So we decided to start a Rough-bastard Jammin’ collection.
When we started talking about the collabo between bastard and Rough, the first product we decided to do was a snowboard. And the first artist we decided to call was Todd Bratrud. The United board represents Todd’s vision of independence and freedom. Anything else? oh yes… the United is made by Rough with the original construction that makes snowboarding easier.
Then we design the Knife hooded coach jacket, waterproof and functional for snowboarding but also easy and stylish for chilling out. The Knife jacket is oricamo allover printed with the “United for independence” artwork printed on back.
Last but not least the Wings t-shirt.
The entire collection is available at the bastard store.
