FILFURY, British artist designer and director, joins the Mill+ team in London, further bolstering its offering of over 35 global directors across London, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.
FILFURY is internationally famous for his mixed medium designs for brands such as Adidas, Nike, Reebok and Size?. He is globally recognised for his unique deconstructed collages and sculptures; mixing laces, leather and stitching from footwear and repurposing them into iconic graphic objects including hand grenades, pistols, skulls, insects and more.
Specializing in graphic design-focused executions, FILFURY directs a full range of works from full animated motion graphic spots to live action, as well as a mix of the two. He is hands on with creating and designing elements from concept creation, through pitch to completion.
His most recent work includes campaigns for Rolls Royce and PlayStation Plus. He also created the artwork for the critically acclaimed 2017 J Hus album ‘Common Sense’ and accompanying animation, which has been viewed over 22 million times via Spotify alone.
His niche style attracts musicians, brand ambassadors and filmmakers alike who commission him to create a bespoke look and feel - this has resulted in working with rich mixture of high profile brands such as Casio, Comcast, Footlocker, Jordan Brand, Sony Music and Philipp Plein.
FILFURY has exhibited his works internationally across London, Amsterdam, Brazil, New York, Milan, Dusseldorf, Monaco, Hong Kong and Miami and has recently featured in industry titles such as Sneaker Freaker, Hypebeast, Complex, Shoes Up, High Snobiety, Quartz and Fubiz.
Mill+ Executive Director Stephen Venning explains, “What excites me most about FILFURY is that he is not only a maker of cool things, but he’s the personification of a contemporary artist of our time. FILFURY is genuinely able to play in so many creative spaces and able to speak to a huge variety of watchers, experiencers and appreciators of whatever cool project he is dedicating his brains, eyes and hands to that day.
Having this kind of adept ability for metamorphosis; to come up with work that moves people in all kinds of genres, is the single biggest requirement of any present day commercial artist. Mill+ is therefore extremely excited to work with such an artist and help him do even more great things.”
FILFURY comments “I want to take my work to the next level. Aligning with Mill+ is the perfect fit.
I’ve got ideas that are too big for me to execute alone. Mill+ has the skills, the talent, passion and attention to detail that I pride myself on applying to my own executions.
The desire is to evolve and develop with Mill+ to push my work into new territories of film, animation and installation using new technologies.
I’ve been longing to put more emotion and storytelling behind my art and looking forward to crafting some magical things.”
