Soldier unveils The Iron Soldier on the streets of London
London-based artist Soldier has unveiled his latest work, The Iron Soldier. It explores the implications of being trapped, inverting the Iron Maiden’s tortuous spikes to become an obstacle open to interpretation – a danger to those on the outside whilst the soul inside finds no companionship, just loneliness. This spotlight on loneliness was unveiled in Bishopsgate, in the heart of the City of London. It is the first time the artist has used live performance, a technique that he feels is essential for his character development. The sculpture was an opportunity for the artist to explore a fresh medium and one that involved the artist himself. It explores the emotional turmoil endured by an immigrant arriving in London for the first time, and the ups and downs of navigating a new life.
Satisfy Running x HOKA is the answer to your speedy, stylish needs
Satisfy Running, the archetypal uniform of the well-dressed runner, has teamed up with HOKA, the comfortable shoe of choice for Mangal 1-munching, 10k-smashing Dalston Daddies. Sure, these will do you just fine for your mid-week tempo run, but they’ll look just as good as your Saturday night two-stepper, too. Arriving in an off white and a deep blue colourway with a gorpy toggle lace system, the Satisfy x HOKA Clifton LS is a thing of beauty. The collaborative shoes release on November 18 via the Satisfy Website, so keep an eye on your Garmin Forerunner.
