Art ist an important aspect of any culture. And with sneaker culture already having such a strong focus on style and self-expression, this movement naturally is the subject of an array of creatives. Sneaker art includes various genres, ranging from hand-drawn or digital illustrations to installation and sculpture.
In addition, the purpose or message behind these works are just as diverse. Some combine an outstanding talent with their love for sneakers, while others express social commentary on the culture itself. But all of these artists share a common trait: They enrich the sneaker world by adding another perspective to it.
Instagram is an ideal space for showcasing both work-in-progress pictures as well as finished pieces of art. That’s why we collected a couple of our favorite pics which you can see out below. All the profiles linked below are well worth exploring to get to know the artists behind them.
