Ozkar Gorgias celebrates anniversary with sneaker exhibit

French street artist and photographer Ozkar Gorgias celebrated his 12 years of graffiti artistry by photographing all the sneakers he wore while creating his art. Each sneaker represents one of those dozen years spent jumping fences, scaling walls and climbing bridges, and the work can be found above (a larger shot in the gallery below). Seems like Gorgias prefers Nike and New Balance, with a little adidas thrown in for good measure. Beyond his graff work, however, Ozkar’s photography work is excellent — peruse the gallery below, full of images capturing the at-times violent subculture. If you like what you see, check out his Beneath a Steel Sky site for more examples…
