Retro Revisited Exhibition at Arta Gallery: June26th- July1st 2011
As of Late last year i have been exhibiting with Six Ah Wi Art Collective.
My series is called ” Kouture Kickz”
This conceptual idea is focused on the customization of Sneakers and taking it to the extreme first stage is a customized design based on the Alexander McQueen Collections but extending it to a sculptural direction, then second stage is photographing it and extending it into a digital collage to create the fantasy that McQueen had. This allows the viewer to see some of the influences a shoe creator/collector experiences and how it can get translated into a personalized shoe.
Above is a behind-the-scenes video that show my inspiration and individual pieces from Alexander McQueen’s Collection.In some way this video and this body of work is tribute to McQueen’s life and works that has challenged + strengthen my creativity .
R.I.P Lee McQueen
Enjoy the video and stay tuned for part 2
ciao for now
