Nathan over at Intercity got in touch today with some news about a new exhibition by Converse.
As part of the global PRODUCT RED project and in association with the Dondi White Foundation, “Converse have approached 100 artists, each to design a shoe. The project has just launched in the UK with an exhibition of some of the original artist shoes currently at Size? sneaker store in Carnaby Street. Some artists hand-painted their shoes as references for the production versions – and both instances of these (original and production shoes) are currently being shown at the exhibition.
Artists and designers include both established names and fresh talent – the likes of Jeremyville, Ben Drury, Chris Bettig, Lupe Fiasco, Grandpeople, Jeff Hamada, Gary Hume, Rostarr, and many more…”
If you could stick a pen in your heart, and let the blood spill out all over a page, what would it look like?
You can see for yourself at the upcoming art show with illustrators Justin Hampton and Malleus (a trio from Italy); some of music’s most popular iconic rock artists to date. The show opens this Saturday, October 4th at Suite 100 Gallery in Seattle, and all the artists will be in attendance.
Get ready for a show so divine, it might make you break down and cry.
Program for performances at Gessnerallee in Zürich. I like the offset-printed marker show through.
Very different from what I am used to.
