Toby Neilan creates his work through a process of photography and digital manipulation, introducing hand drawn elements, geometric forms and a strong sense of colour, combined with expressive mark making. Recent developments have seen him drawing with a dot to produce paired-down visuals with a free painterly result. In a collaboration with make up artist Sharon Dowsett, which lasted 10 years, Toby had the opportunity to record and respond to the backstage production of major fashion shows in London, Paris and Milan. Other clients have included, Issey Miyake, where he produced a window installation at Issey’s London Flagship store (illustrating both the interior and that seasons APOC collection), the Kylie X World Tour, in collaboration with design and lighting specialists UVA, and, again working closely with UVA, visuals for Jay-Z Blueprint World Tour. Other international clients have included Y-3, Nike, American Express and IBM. Toby has also been visiting tutor at Epsom University of the Creative Arts and London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London.

A Few of My Favourite Sneakers (AFOMFS)
AFOMFS is curated by Art & Sole (at Intercity). Art & Sole is both a book and an online resource that celebrates the creative side of sneaker culture; featuring the best artist / designer sneaker collaborations, as well as showcasing artists who based their work on sneakers – from sculptures made from dissected shoes, to oil paintings on canvas. Not content with simply writing about all the creative collaborations out there, Art & Sole also currently curate two projects based on the theme of art and sneakers. The second of these curatorial projects, and the basis for this collaboration with Stereohype, is entitled A Few Of My Favourite Sneakers. The project is an ongoing series which sees Art & Sole commission select artists and illustrators to draw their favourite sneakers. Individual artists are asked to draw ten sneakers in total, and illustration collectives can submit one sneaker per artist. The results of the project so far can be seen within the AFOMFS category on the Art & Sole website, and selected images from the series are also available to purchase as limited edition giclée prints through the Art & Sole shop.
