Valentin Ruhry's 'Nike Air' Piece of Art is Realistic

Valentin Ruhry's 'Nike Air' sculpture is a bronzed Nike shoe and lace that pops out of the frame. The sculpture features a sneaker and shoelace that has been nailed to the floor. The sculpture itself is immobile, but it looks as though it will fall out of the frame at any minute.

Valenin Ruhry's 'Nike Air' takes cues from pop culture, especially using Nike kicks, which are arguably the most popular running shoes in the world. It's a pretty neat idea for an art piece. Stats for Shoelace Sculptures Trending: Older & Average
