Inspiration takes many forms and hits artists differently. Where some are intrigued by beautiful landscapes or skylines, others recognize the impact that a clean pair of kicks can have on one’s mood, personality, and wardrobe. Achildcolor is one of those artists, who has recently wrapped up a series of watercolour paintings of some of the industries best sneakers, recreating models from New Balance, Nike, adidas, Reebok, and Asics mixed in with collabs with Ronnie Fieg and BAPE. Sure, anyone can get into the sneaker artwork business, but you can quickly identify the winners and losers and you have to say that this German painter realliy captures the energy and brilliance of each pair.
