To say that Tinker Hatfield created works of art when he designed the Air Jordan III-XIV would be a severe understatement. Tinker’s first Air Jordan creation, the Air Jordan III, wasn’t like anything we’ve seen before; it perfectly welded the contemporary styles of that era with avant-garde materials and lines, and introduced the Jumpman logo proudly on the tongue. With 2011 being the twenty-third anniversary of the Air Jordan III, sneakerheads new and old were compelled to reflect on the historical significance of the Air Jordan III, while some took it a step further and recreated this work of art using funky materials. Artist Curtis Anthony of pARlaiTin erected the Air Jordan III Black/Cement using wires, detailing all the prominent features of the AJ3 while keeping the dimensions intact. It’s real-life 3D art at its finest, so check out additional images of this astounding work below and let us know what you think.
so glad to see people taking notice of Curtis's work. check out his website he's been doing this for a while… I've been trying to get him to do a Foamposite next
this is sick, honestly making a wire sculpture is so much harder than you would think, just having the patience to make this is crazy
What I love about this ART too . . Is how he put some real shoe laces to make it stand out even more . . Much props to you man and your hard work
