The shoe becomes a painting

This season the Bag & Shoe space of the Display forum literally turns into a contemporary  art gallery to sublimate shoes. But there’s no question of pompous academism—it’s the season of the Happy Happening. Graffiti and dripping cover sneakers, buckles or zipper pulls with their spontaneous motifs. Heels and insignia are covered with zentangles, those outlined and entangled, abstractly patterned drawings. Straps, piping and transparent plastic chains are marbled with lascivious spirals like tie-dyes or veiled with subtly landscaped gradations. A veritable atelier that can only inspire creativity.
