This guy has some amazing stuff on his site, It embodies an amazing element of recycling,
namely turning Nike shoes and turning them into inventive gas masks.
Each one is different, and it holds an amazing unique quality that the shoes
themselves once possessed. He transforms them, but allows them to maintain
their own individuality.
I think what this guy is doing is great.
It shows a sleek, and streamlined urban "post apoc" feel.
And although they may not be functional, or anything you would
EVER see in an apocalyptic world.... they sure are a great and welcomed
art in the modern world. Check out some info about the artist below!
Summarized Bio (Taken from his Site) : Freehand Profit is a Los Angeles based artist who earned his name as a graffiti artist in DC and Northern Virginia. In 2005 he graduated Corcoran College of Art & Design with a BA in Fine Arts. Since then he’s rooted himself in LA’s Hip-Hop scene and has been working to forget what he learned in art school and make work without the pretentiousness that all too often accompanies “good” art.
