Here at The Design Effect we want to start showcasing Sydney’s young creative talent. Today’s feature is an artwork created by Alex Tomkins. The artwork is a part of the Foot Locker Art Prize. Alex’s work is very much influenced by nature and the urban environment, mixed with tongue in cheek humour and iconic characters.
Born into a family of interior designers, architects, sculptures and artists, being a designer was not so much forced upon him but grew out of a love for colour, patterns, photography, painting, drawing and creating something from nothing.
Alex’s describes his artwork as “Out of the depths of the sea erupts a vibrating dreamscape complete with Willy Wonka’s jelly-tipped mountains nestled under an upstaged moon. The Colour Comet shower is mid-attack and leaving a multi-colour orgy sizzling in its wake. The sky lights up in hazy shades of smoky violet, mauve and indigo, hot and fiery comets yet to hit fly across the side, still live with energy. High up on the horizon, stars, comet dust and little planets hover, watching the mayhem unfold, giggling at the splendour.
You can take a sneaker and use it as a sneaker, or you can take a flight of fancy and read into the story on your feet...”
