"There’s a saying about getting better with age. People use it for wines. Or when they can’t come up with an imaginative punchline for a birthday card. But when it comes to these fours, which pair is worth treasuring – the brand new one straight from the box or the one that has countless miles and memories attached to it?"

- Filip Gorski, Photographer

MANKOVSKY has teamed up with Munich-based lifestyle retailer BSTN.com and their label Beastin for a limited-edition print run of two exclusive artworks from the label’s unique premium sportswear imagery. Dubbed ‘First Light’ and ‘Last Legs’ the photo series explores the topic of desirability across various stages of wear and tear on a shoe.

Deeply rooted in both basketball and the accompanying sneaker culture, BEASTIN has worked with long-time friend of the family Filip Gorski. A former basketball player himself, the autodidact photo- and videographer has captured some of the most sought-after silhouettes within the culture, each in its own unique setting.

We produce all artworks by hand in Sweden using the best archival Hahnemühle paper and the finest pigment inks which meets and exceeds museum in quality and age resistance.

Each artwork comes stamped and quality assured- signed on its back, numbered appropriately and embossed with the Mankovsky Gallery embossing stamp.

Each artwork is exclusively represented by Mankovsky Gallery and includes a certificate of authenticity hand-signed by the artist.

Each artwork is made on demand and we reserve up to 14 days of production for every order. We offer free home deliveries in Sweden with DHL Express on all unframed orders. All orders are traceable and insured.
