Customized «Issun Boshi» by Icinori Victoria Shoes

The Workshop lasted 4 days, in which we had to sketch the idea based on the choosen quote, paint it and present it to the juror team. I decided to use acrylic paint to modify the sneakers’ outer look.

My proposal got selected to the exhibition by the jurors and it lasted one year, from January 2016 to January 2017, and traveled around Spain: Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona – CCCB, BIMS, Bellver de Cerdanya, Madrid (Centro Cultural Conde Duque), Museu del Disseny de Barcelona, “Xarxa de biblioteques municipals” and Madrid.

We had to choose between many quotes from Children’s books to illustrate the project. I chose Issun Boshi by Icinori, a japanese author and writer: “Ya sé que el mundo es muy grande, sobre todo para mí, pero quizás en la ciudad encontraré el destino en mi vida.” (I know the world is very big, especially for me, but maybe in the city I will find the destiny in my life).
