This Friday at MOCAD
One Night

10 sets of mannequin legs have been decorated by 10 artists for the shoe company Zuzatz for the launch of their new line of interchangeable flip-flops. Each set of legs has a different theme to show the different places the shoes can be worn.

Below are pictures of the legs I painted.
I chose the forest for my theme to showcase the snakeskin uppers.
