For those who know British sculptor Benedict Radcliffe, most probably recognize the man for his car sculptures and fixed gear bike creations. Just to name a few, the man had created steel frame sculptures of Lamborghini, neon-happy Flouro Bikes with Fixed Gear London, and a Graffiti Bike for the Bicycle Film Festival held in New York City earlier this year. To celebrate the launch of Dizzee Rascal's Air Max 90 launched just earlier this year as well, Nike Sportswear 1948 in London enlisted Benedict Radcliffe to create a steel frame sculpture of the famed Air Max 1 for the shop's outside space. Sneaker Freaker got together with Benedict Radcliffe to talk about the Giant Air Max 1 Sculpture project, learn about how the project was born, Radcliffe's favorite Nike kicks and his love for fixed gear bikes. Check out the interview, take a look at the pictures of the meticulously detailed sculpture and get to know the man who brought us all sorts of interesting whimsical artistic takes on our most coveted rides.   via: Sneaker Freaker
