Description

Artist Cleon Peterson collaborated with streetwear and skate giants, HUF, to create the present skate deck as part of a 2016 capsule collection titled 'In Killing We Live.' The skate deck features Peterson's signature style motifs reminiscent of Greco-Roman pottery, depicting two men engaged in a face to face fight to the death. Peterson often employs this brutal, chaotic imagery throughout his work as a reflection of the darker aspects of 21st Century society.
