Many sneakerheads reading this perhaps recall the name Matt Senna. He is the Los Angeles-based artist who had sculpted an Air Jordan 3 pair made entirely of Bronze back in October 2014. The same year, he followed up with a Bronze statue of the Air Jordan 13. Last year, Wish Atlanta Boutique and Matthew teamed up to further showcase the conceptual artist’s talent through a Wish x Matthew Senna Air Jordan Art exhibition that was dubbed “Higher Learning: Study 001.” It turns out that Matthew Senna has turned yet another Air Jordan model into a work of art and this time it is the Air Jordan 11.
Perhaps one of Mathew Senna’s most eye-catching creation, which was featured in the exhibition, was the statue of the Air Jordan 1 that was entirely made of sparkling Gold. Of course, the exhibition also featured several other Bronze Air Jordan statues. Renaldo Nehemiah, the first man to run the 110 m hurdles in under 13 seconds, served as the curator of the exhibition. To state the least, the exhibition was quite a treat for both art enthusiasts and sneakerheads. The exhibiton was held on May 1st, 2015 at Wish Atlanta Boutique’s flagship store from 7 PM to 9 PM, and limited seating had been available.
Sneakerheads who have taken a glance at any of Matthew Senna’s previous Air Jordan statues have probably felt that they look almost like wearable customs. The likely reason behind this is that Matthew uses actual Air Jordan sneakers to cast them into unique Bronze or Gold statues that closely resemble the sneakers to the extent of looking wearable. His most recent Bronze Air Jordan 11 statue looks the same as well. According to Matthew himself, he apparently used his own Air Jordan 11 “Bred” pair and was able to not ruin his beloved sneaker in the process.
While sneakerheads can stare in awe at Matthew Senna’s Bronze and Gold creations, they can obviously not cop a pair. However, if they cannot get their eyes off the Bronze Air Jordan 11 statue featured here, they could perhaps divert their attention towards copping the upcoming “Space Jam” release.
