Chris ”Honorroller” Chan. A Brooklyn- based artist with a multidisciplinary practice that combines sculpture, illustration, and graphic design to explore social constructs, branding, popular culture, and the transition from youth to adulthood. Often rendered primarily in wood, his geometric sculptures use abstract visual language to depict contemporary fashion and footwear. With these principles at the forefront of his work, Chan retains the organic element of the material to represent a mass-produced consumer good. Although they emulate iconic footwear, the rigid forms themselves are created to host and support live plants flowers.
Honorroller creates exclusive commission works for major brand concepts and clients from around the world which makes the three sculptures represented by us something truly unique to showcase to our base of collectors.

Flowers have always been a part of Nicklas's expression. From bursting buds to withering petals.

The Atlantic Ocean separates them but their creative outputs came together in our studio.
