A little more about him from his website:

Sekure D lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. In 2006 Sekure was losing himself in his sneaker addiction and in the ultimate attempt to stand out begun to customize his own sneakers in order to have the most limited of limited releases, the 1 of a kind. What began as a hobby quickly evolved into a part time job painting shoes in his bedroom to the beginnings of a new full time career in design.

Sekure cites his love for graffiti, sneakers, comics and cinema as the main driving forces behind the creation of his distinctive style. As well as painting on sneakers Sekure features his artwork on canvas and in conjunction with his three solo shows in Australia and New Zealand he has had work featured in numerous group shows and galleries such as the National Gallery of Victoria, Australia, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

During this time Sekure has worked on two collaboration sneakers with the skate footwear brand Globe and been featured in a variety of magazines, websites, newspapers and books including Sneaker Freaker, Sole Collector, The Age and ‘Custom Kicks’. Sekure works tirelessly evolving his style and skill set to ensure there is always something new and fresh coming out his studio.
