Korean artist Kang S. Lee pointed to the Nike Dunk from his own personal sneaker collection for his latest project, creating abstract ceramic sculptures of the classic Nike high-top basketball shoe. Lee’s depicts the evolution of the Nike Dunk over the years by portraying each ceramic sculpture with a unique trademark, whether it be a tonal cement speckling, split in half with meticulous textiles and graphics printed on the interior, or growing spikes on the toe like fungi thriving on a dead tree. Lee certainly has an interesting take on the Nike Dunk but his collection doesn’t stop with that shoe, as he will complete a series of 50-100 different sculptures of kicks from other brands like Converse, adidas, Reebok and Vans.
