Fuelling creativity through community, here's a glimpse into the creative mind of London's s Insa.
Q: When it comes to culture; art, music, fashion... How does your city differ from others around the world?
A: I think the struggle in a big city like London breeds creativity and I think many of the art forms in London are a direct result of the clash of cultures and class.
Q: How can art be inclusive?
A: The very nature of public art is inclusive. Being in the public space means it’s for everybody. It’s important that art can be enjoyed on multiple levels whether that be as a simple sensory excitement or a deeper intellectual understanding. Art affects everyone even in a subconscious way.
Q: How important is collaboration to your artistic progress? What does this particular collaboration mean to you?
A: I love collaboration. Graffiti as a genre has been built on the ability to work with other painters. Now as an artist, collaborating with brands is great. I love to see my ideas in many different mediums and new places.
Part work of art. Part street-style essential. The Mx3 sneaker is a canvas for self expression. Noted for confronting the fetishisation of products in modern society with animative large scale murals, London-based Insa created this limited-edition design. Featuring a breathable mesh upper and TFU webbing-enforced eyelets, this seamless, yet flexi-fit sneaker is set on a cushioned heel and pyramid raised sole, for shock absorption and traction.
