Christophe guinet, a paris-based artist, rethinks the iconic NIKE slogan with his project ‘just grow it’ by cultivating sneaker-shaped vegetable and plant-based sculptures. The sneakers are transformed into compositions made from rocks, poppies, seeds, flower petals and wood. Assembled with patience and with remarkable dexterity, the plant shoes are rendered in a hyper-realistic state, with every facet of the sneaker from the sole to the swoosh pieced together with the environmental materials. The project asks the viewer to rediscover the beauty in nature, not just in manufacturing.
