"Sneakers addicts accumulate tons of kicks and often don’t wear them at
all: shoes are turned into pieces of art. I wanted to represent my
collection of kicks in the same way. Additionally, using carton was also
a way for me to denounce mass consumption. It usually takes me 20 hours
approximately to produce one shoe. All my creations are handmade.
This image represents my last series honoring the infamous and inspiring
Nike Air Max 90. Devoted to protecting the environment, I mostly use
recycled materials: plastic, raffia or empty boxes. I also use acrylic
paint, glue and gloss varnish. I really wanna emphasize on the fact that
this image is a 2D representation of my work. I want people to know
that I specialize in 3D creations that are also available here." - Smoluk
