DFT transforms NIKE Air Jordan into surreal accessory crafting a single line anamorphosis of a Nike Air Jordan on its real life model. Creating the illusion of wearing a piece of figurative art instead of a shoe.
The artwork, created by the Parisian creative duo DFT, is transposed during a long and iterative procedure finalized by high-precision hand painting. When transposing the illustration, DFT avoided using a grid system combined with 3D software and instead opted for a mix of projection and lots of hand adjustments. due to the specific shape of the sneaker, the artwork is a distorted perspective displaying itself perfectly from a specific standpoint only.
DFT’s original pieces are held around the world and the duo is currently working on making their one line art into sculptures. Keep up to date with the duo via their instagram where they recently launched their first limited edition prints.
“The physical subject and its artistic rendition overlap into one figurative delusional reality”, DFT – an abbreviation of differently – explain. “in an ephemeral way, the artwork supersedes its subject and reality disappears on behalf of its own reinterpretation, creating an interesting contrast between tangible and intangible”.
