The GH1-95 NFT piece was completed in 2022.
It is a digital artwork depicting the Fila Grant Hill 1 sneakers from 1995 worn by Rookie of the Year Grant Hill of the Detroit Pistons. It is one of the artist's most memorable sneakers from when he was growing up in a basketball-crazy high school in 1995. It has been re-released by Fila as a retro edition sneaker in the past few years.
This work was created as an original one-off piece in a vector format. This process involved creating a vector illustration of the shoes. This was then laid out over a chain-link fence illustration which was then placed over a sunset background. Paintbrush-esque textures in an organic but uniform motion feature in the background. Custom shadow layers were placed over the top of the piece giving a greater sense of depth. This piece also comes in a digital animated version with subtle shadow movement across the piece.
The original vector file was created at 4000 pixels square. Being a full vector piece, it can be resized infinitely without loss of quality. If you are interested in purchasing as an NFT with the option (at additional cost) of having the artwork printed and mounted, or to oversee the installation into larger premises or corporate spaces we can provide this service. The vector file can also be supplied as an option.
The piece was created in January and February of 2022 from our studio on the East Coast of Australia.
