Sneaker and Shoe Art Painting Series

We all had that one pair of shoes we loved. Mystery of the Flying Kicks is a series about your favorite, iconic, most sought after and expensive kicks tied together and tossed over power lines. Why are they up there? This series shows that society has put them so high up on a pedestal that they are now out of reach. But in the streets there are alternate meanings. 

The painting series has blossomed a growing following and returning base of collectors. They are available for sale and custom paintings can be ordered through commission. Contact me to inquire about artwork and own a truly unique quality piece of fine art today!
