What kind of Art did Sneakerhead culture produce?

In terms or artwork, some sneakerheads produced artwork that could be viewed in a professional setting. Modern Sneakerheads created artwork that could be shown in galleries or in design portfolios, but before the gallery and portfolios were custom shoes. Sneakers were a blank canvas to sneakerheads. By painting all white air force ones sneakers were transformed into pieces of art that could be worn so the whole world could see a masterpiece. The most renowned sneaker customizers are Sabotage (Sbtg) and Tangible Thoughts. Tangible Thoughts typically painted famous people on sneakers, like Tupac and Scarface, while Sabotage was a little more abstract and focused on composition.
