How does OAO define “Creativity” ?
What is “Creativity” to a Creator?
To some, it may be an existence like air, and to others it might be an entity subject to love.
Sometimes, it may carry insanity.
Portrayed in this stylish and intense conceptual work, is the passion and ideals Creators keep hidden deeply within, with OAO and its sneaker THE CURVE 1 which supports Creativity.
In this work, we focused on 4 leading creators of differing genres, Musician and Drummer of Rockband TEMPALAY John Natsuki, Suibokuga Artist CHiNPAN,Florist Yasutaka Ochi, and Shoes designer Masaya Kushino.
