Insa in Glasgow

We flew Insa up from London and commissioned him to paint his signature heel pattern on the Timeless shop shutters , needless to say he did a great job and was a really nice guy 🙂
We are proud to bring his artwork to Glasgow city centre.
here’s some info

INSA is one of the UK’s most innovative and respected graffiti writers. He is probably best known for his Heels image in which he uses powerful black and white patterns to play with and distort spaces and to entice the viewer into the fantasy world of materialistic aspiration.

His high heel designs have featured on a number of INSA-styled products from ladies’ underwear, toys, t-shirts, high heeled shoes and custom designed sneakers. He established himself from a graffiti background through extensive street level work and gallery shows around the world. INSA has designed signature collections for brands such as Kangol, Kid Robot and Oki-Ni, as well as starting his own heel company ‘INSA HEELS’.

His project ‘Girls on a Bike’ is a public installation project in which provocatively dressed, voluptuous female volunteers were photographed in racy poses on bicycles in front of INSA’s graffiti walls around the world. The possessed object of the bike and the overtly sexualized female presence question our perceptions of ownership; of public space, sexuality, and belongings. The series has been a global success, sending the kaleidoscopic images viral.
