Even if you’re not an athlete, I’ll bet you have seen Nike shoes and Nike shoeboxes hundreds of times in your life. You’ll never look at them the same way again after seeing some of the art that Stephen Signa-Aviles created using just those items.
Signa-Aviles sculpted shoes and boxes into elaborate chickens and birds (and many other items seen here) thus turning an ordinary object into beautiful art – or at least that is how it appears to me. For him, it’s a deeper statement about hip-hop, consumerism and masculinity.
Think about the message that you’re trying to convey. Instead of traditional methods, is there a way to reimagine something that is around you every day? An art exhibit with creative sneakers is much more powerful than another tweet about consumerism. What is a novel way to share your story?
