Let’s get a little on the surreal side today. Take a look at the photos below and tell us what you think. What are they? Twisted Nike shoes? Are they twisted like this is reality or is it just a Computer generated image? God knows.
We’ll help you break the mystery. The pictures you’ll see below are Chris Labrooy’s trademark surrealist illustrations of the recently revived NIKE “air presto ultra flyknit” shoes.
Who is Chris? He’s a UK-based artist who explores CGI as a creative medium to subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural forms. He is best known for his “tales of auto elasticity”, a collection of manipulated cars bearing strange and distorted appearances. The most notorious he has cast his lucid dreams upon are Japan’s rich automotive and animation culture in “twisted and tangled cars in Tokyo”. He has also played toyed with the iconic 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RS. More info: Behance
