Space Sneakers by Ghica Popa
In much in the same vain as our own AFOMFS project, Romanian artist Ghica Popa decided to illustrate his favourite (Nike) sneakers using his very personal style; a surrealist mix of science fiction, comic book art, cubism and pop art...
In adidtion to working as an advertising agency creative director, Popa is an illustration artist based in Bucharest, Romania, with clients including the likes of Boxfresh, Orange, Ikea and Samsung. The Space Sneakers project shown here has actually received a fair amount of press over recent months, but we thought it was about time we showed them here on Art & Sole.
Popa has also just completed a follow up to the initial Space Sneakers project, by illustrating a variety of sneaker silhouettes for issue 27 of Sneaker Freaker magazine - a selection of which (including the SF cover) can also be seen below
