空 S O R A

空 S O R A

A nickname / alter ego created a long time ago when I was into skateboarding ( skateboarded for 13 years), grafitti and music (turntablism).
Wanted a 4 letter word, and at that time I had just started my Japanese studies. SORA means many things, from “empty” to “sky”.

I chose it for “sky“. The same physical sky above our heads, no matter where we are born, our religion or the color of our skin.

It later became my “artist/designer“ signature.

My first project was to finish Leo Chang’s amazing design on the ZOOM REV 2017 when I joined the basketball category.
Those are the sketches I did to explain the concept when the shoe released for PR.
