This Artist Destroys and Transforms $35,000 Shoes
 

 

Published on Aug 9, 2018

Gary Lockwood has always been obsessed with art, hip-hop, and sneakers, and in 2010, he found a way to combine all three passions: mask-making. The artist started tearing apart shoes—from the common to the ultra-collectible—and piecing them back together into ornate, colorful gasmasks. Now, he’s turned his artwork into a business, selling masks to high-profile clients from Method Man to Kevin Durant, and collaborating with companies like Nike, Adidas, and Versace.

VICE met up with Lockwood (a.k.a. Freehand Profit) to hear what drew him to mask-making, tour his studio, and follow along as he put together a new piece from a handful of coveted sneakers.

Wanted to hate but this is pretty dope conceptually, him deconstructing shoes demystifies them by redefining them for what what they really are when you take away the fancy nicknames and hype.

True but will this guy make a mask for you if he thinks the shoes are not legit ? The mask are cool but unnecessary
