Sicksystems & Nike

Russian artist Aske (aka Sicksystems) has just completed this Air Force 1 Duckboot sculptural piece, entitled The Wolf, for a new Nike Sportswear store in Moscow...

Picking up on the 'hybrid' theme of the subject matter (an Air Force 1 High combined with the functionality of a Duck Boot), Aske has turned the shoe into the face of a wolf, constructed from layered plywood and then painted with acrylic.

Originally a graffiti artist, Aske further developed his visual style though graphic design, illustration and typography, and, as is evident in his work, Aske enjoys working digitally as well as on physical graphic and sculptural projects.
