Sneaker Mashups and the Art of @filfury

To see more creative sneaker mashups from Phil Robson, follow @filfury on Instagram.

“I hate sneakers getting old and tired. My art acts as a way of preserving them,” say UK graphic artist and director Phil Robson, aka “Fury” (@filfury).

Using his own photographs and some Photoshop ingenuity, Fury creates digital sneaker mashups of things like insects, bats, skulls and moths. To create a butterfly from a pair of Nike Air Max 93s, Phil plays off the sneaker’s various textures. “I love the shoe’s paneling, the soft curves of the upper and the harsh rubber chiseled sole. The two surfaces contrast, and makes me think about a before and after, like the soft wings of a butterfly have come from the hard casing on the cocooned sole.”

Fury is especially drawn to objects that have bold forms, symmetry, and sharp angles. “I love taking the recognizable textures from my favorite shoes and making a new form with them,” he says. “I guess it was a natural progression for me to mix my passions.”

His digital artwork shared on Instagram began as a passion project but is now developing into some real life sculpture interpretations. “Next level for me,” Fury says, “would be to direct an animated piece based off my mashup stylings. I’m just waiting for the brief.”

Chet Faker - Gold

In both video and song, Chet Faker excels at sultry simplicity. His smokey but fragile voice over the clapping, the serpentine silhouettes of roller girls.

The song is smooth, despite Faker’s Australian roots, he’s obviously inspired by Motown, Bon Iver and R&B. The girls’ (Appleusa McGlynn, April Corley, Candice Heiden) choreography a deliciously and buttery accompaniment to this feel good croon.

Gold is entrancing and perfect for late night listening. 

Get Gold on iTunes today.

p.s. if Faker looks or sounds familiar to you, it might be because his cover of No Diggity went viral awhile back.

Thanks to invincibeard for introducing me to this awesome track.
