Air Jordan IV “Fire Red” Mask by Freehand Profit
Where there’s fire, there’s smoke. And where there’s smoke you’re gonna need a gas mask. Freehand Profit doesn’t have one of those for us this time, instead offering up a more straightforward mask creation. The piece is just a bit more conservative than usual, sourcing just one pair of the Air Jordan IV “Fire Red” in its creation. Continue reading to see the full photos of his handiwork, as well as a video featuring their display at Drunk Off Shoes in Montreal, and make sure you chime in via the comments regarding this bit of Air Jordan sneaker art.
What people consider art will always be a matter of opinion. When I look at this all I think is, he has a pair of shoes on his face... Not, he has a mask on... I think the actual art behind this would be cool though, if he were to paint a character wearing a IV mask or a character made completely out of IVs, executed well I think it would be much more well received by the art and sneaker community... my 2 cents...
I wouldn't do this to my shoes but I love it. He uses his own shoes bought with his own money. And it's art. Nobody else is out there doing this. He is his own person
first i want to say this is dope! creative! but i dont get how people saying he trashed a perfectly good shoe! 1st its his money and you can do what you want with what you buy!
I guess it's kind of a cool concept, but to butcher a perfectly good pair of shoes (especially Retro IV's) to make a mask just sounds stupid to me...
