Matthew Nicholson & Nobrow
We finally made it down to the Pick Me Up exhibition in London last night (thanks Gavin), and while we were there we spotted these oversized cardboard Nike Dunks by paper artist Matthew Nicholson. The shoes were produced to help launch the new book from independent publishing house Nobrow, entitled A Few of my Favorite Things.
Nicholson is an MA student studying Illustration at Central Saint Martins, although his educational background is actually in photography. 'To be honest I don't necessarily fit either category,' says Nicholson, 'but to me that doesn't really matter as it's always been about making things.' Nicholson believes his work stems from his childhood where he was often given cellotape and paper as a present because he simply enjoyed the act of making things with his hands. 'Funnily enough as a kid one of my favorite things to make were paper shoes with my cousin, so it was nice to revisit those games again with Nobrow.'
