For artist Phil Robson, aka FILFURY, obsession shapes life–and art.
In Robson’s case, those creativity-informing obsessions include the 90s, basketball and fashion. Such obsessions translate quite well into reality, as Robson has collaborated with Nike, Adidas and Reebok–among a host of other big names.
Also inspired by the likes of Stan Lee, Ron English, Neville Brody and Ewen Spencer, Robson describes his work as “a battle of pop culture vs nature,” and enjoys utilizing contemporary textures to repurpose form and painting. One such texture is–you guessed it–the shoe. Robson makes himself at home cutting and arranging soles, laces, tongues until they no longer resemble shoes but insects, guns, and even skulls.
