3 Questions, 3 Answers – Dejan – Creative of the Sneakerness Poster Exhibition

Sneakerness asked the creatives of the Posters 3 questions.

Here you go with Dejan!

When did Art become a part of your life, how have you been influenced?
My grandfather taught me how to draw – He was also the reason why I started to paint graffiti – The colorful buildings and subways fascinated him.
(Un)Fortunatly Graffiti was the reason why I was bad in school, so I had to turn this hobby into a profession – I studied graphic design in Basel. I had nothing else ;)

Your relation to sneakers?
I collect sneakers – it all starts with Breakdance – ok, I have to be honest, my windmill was bad, but I had the freshest kicks on – Adidas Gazelle – They were a gift from my mother – (now it all makes sense, my family brought me to the hip hop culture – haha – I have to thank them for that).

What’s the meaning behind your illustration/picture/painting?
Love it or leave it – or, all your passion comes from your heart – or, a pair air max thrown in the corner looks like a heart ;) I don’t know, choose one.
