In partnership with Talenthouse, we launched a competition to crash and collide an original.
The winner could get their artwork up and on display at our Covent Garden store.
Take a look at some of the finalists...
The Judges Pick: ‘Shiver me Sneakers’ – by Dean Cook
“The good ship HMS Originals sailed to the treacherous waters off the coast of the Unfound Lands in search of all that was fresh & original. As the boat weaved in and out of Dead Man's Rocks, a giant beast of mythical proportions rose out of the depths and wrapped it's curious tentacles around the mighty galleon. This foul beast of the high seas had plundering on his mind!
The Captain, too busy trying to impressive a fare Mermaid, did not notice the commotion as the ships crew began to flee on improvised lifeboats. Would he snap out of his ogling ways and save the ship and it's Originals cargo from this towering monster of the waves? Or will the poor look-out in the crows nest be gobbled up like a mid-day Burrito?”
The Judges Pick: ‘Laced with Passion’ by Simon Misra
“My Unite All Originals piece illustrates the original theme of the Adidas brand. A pair of classic Gazelle trainers start the work off at the bottom of the canvas, with the laces interweaving through the imagery of the illustration & uniting all the elements around the brand founder Adi Dassler. Passion, energy & excitement combined to show why Adidas commands such brand loyalty”
