It would be wrong to say until yesterday I had not seen INSA’s work. In fact when working on Shoreditch I saw his pieces on an almost daily basis. However, it would be right to say I have not seen pieces of his I like, or which inspired me to find out more. I don’t like his trademark patterns. With the ‘boob grabbing’ graffiti having got me past this mental block however I LOVE what I found on his website >> go check it out.
Who remembers the McDonald’s branded coke spoon? More of that below but what really drew me to the attention of Ju$t Another Rich Kid for the second time was these Nike trainers for a bargain £2700 mark. Their creator the New York based graphic artist and designer Ken Courtney who uses art and fashion design to address the commodity of ‘celebrity’.
Nike trainers - £2700
Coke spoons for around £1500 and up anyone - that’s 30 wraps in the Class A currency… Regardless of your views of taking drugs you have to admire the balls of someone who issues a special coke spoon 10 piece gift set for $2250
More coke spoons after the break…
SO jealous and wish I had budgets like this to create press kits (sigh) – even Notcot only got sent the images…
I am talking about the Nike press kit for Write the Future campaign (World Cup activity) which is fucking awesome…. All the soccer stars are personified in crayon carvings by crayon carver, Diem Chau for W+K and therefore Nike… Incredible.
