Designer & Stylist Low-Kei was one of the few to be hand selected for a WeAreCultivator X Nike collaboration. The platform gives artists and creators the opportunity to bring their inspirations to life by designing & releasing authentic Nike sneakers on a global scale. We had the chance to talk with Low-Kei about the story behind the shoes as well inspirations & advice he has for up and coming artist.
What inspired you?
My inspiration comes from within. The idea of creating is exciting yet peaceful to me.
I use everyday things we as people see on a day to day basis around us.
It could be a bird I see flying but the colors on the bird could give me an idea 💡for a new color way.
Life is art and art is life . Life is my daily inspiration when it comes to creating.
What advice do you have for the youth aspiring to be artist?
For the ones coming up behind me (youth), be sure to always follow your creative heart .
It will lead you places . Always stick to your creativity and don’t change it for anyone.
That’s how you remain unique, how you remain you.
It’s easy to get lost on what’s going on with other artists or what’s the wave at the moment.
But stay original, stay you & never give up on that. Consistency is key.
