Filfury: The Sneaker Freaker Artist


Here at House of Coco we are always on the lookout for something unique and a little different that can transform your interior from being dull and drab to cool and contemporary. Art is a great way to jazz up a room and add some much needed colour and the prints by British artist, Filfury, tick every single box.

Filfury’s modern masterpieces draw inspiration from growing up in the 90’s, cartoons, action films, comics, America, NBA, UK garage, a soda can collection and a serious trainer addiction. After relocating from Sydney to Amsterdam and now back to the hub of creativity in the UK, Brighton, Fury is continuing to wow the art world with his unique and unusual take on art.



His work is a battle of pop culture vs nature; a combination that makes for very interesting and beautifully original prints that have been exhibited all over the globe. He has officially collaborated with a number of well-known brands including, Nike Basketball, Adidas, Reebok, Sneaker Pimps, Corona and Size?

I caught up with Filfury to ask him a few questions about his work.


What is FILFURY?

I am FILFURY. I kind of gave myself the name at school during an art project… 20 years later I am still trying to be my inner superhero!


What is your background?

I am graphic designer and director. I direct tv commercials, films and art direct campaigns for brands. 


What inspires your work?

My life. My travels. People, places, nature, music, art and fashion. My 2 little boys are having a good influence lately too!


Your work is a fantastic blend of art, fashion and interior decor. How did you come up with the idea?

Sketching, playing, having fun. Not taking things too seriously. I thought it would be cool to create images with the things that surround me, I love sneakers, why not paint with them.


What has been the highlight of your career?

I guess all the exposure I am getting recently. No one project has been more special, I’ve enjoyed them all and for different reasons. So it’s nice to know people are getting to see my work. It’s nice to have feedback, good and positive, its rewarding to know I am making people have an emotion.


Where do you see the brand going in the future?

More of the stuff I love. Larger projects, exhibitions, word domination please. 🙂
