[ 7.8.12 ART & SOLE ]
A new series of eight art prints, entitled the Minimal Sneaker Project, sees Stefan Dukaczewski of design practice MSTRPLN® take an extremely minimal graphic approach to some of the most iconic footwear from the late 80s and early 90s…
The artworks feature a selection of celebrated Nike sneaker models and colourways appropriated into modern minimalist design layouts, including the Nike Safari and Air Max 95 (shown top), the Nike Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Jordan 4 and ACG Mowabb – see if you can guess which is which.
As for the inspiration for this print series, Dukaczewski has been a designer for the past 12 years and has always had a strong connection to sneaker culture. ‘Growing up in the 80s and 90s,’ he explains, ‘I had a lot of exposure to both street and sport culture, and the common bond between those two lifestyles always ended up with what was on your feet.
