During my High School days in Italy, I used to play basketball.  At the time there was one choice, and one choice only, when it came to basketball shoes: Converse All Star, a.k.a. Chuck Taylor.

I loved them.  I used to have a few pairs, always low top; my favorite were the Siena colored ones.

After high school I stopped playing basketball and through the years I wore Converse on and off as my own personal fashion statement, so to speak.

A few years ago I took an old pair of Converse and painted then Jackson Pollock style.  I loved them. So did my friends, acquaintances, family and many strangers.  A few months later I painted another pair of Converse, this time Graffiti style: more accolades.  Then one more pair spray painted Street Art style; people could not get enough of my Converse.  My reply to comments was always the same:  “I’m an Artist, if you like my shoes, you should see my Art.”  They all loved my shoes, mixed reactions to my other Art.

I took that as a sign that my Muse was trying to tell me something, and decided to put together a show based on Converse All Star as the medium of my Art, hence Pied-à-Terre was born.

Pied-à-terre is an exploration between traditional 2D Art (paintings, prints) and 3D Art (sculptures, assemblages), showcased at the Ellison Center for the Arts – Duxbury, MA (USA); February 3, 2016 to March 31, 2016.
Vernissage / Opening Party: Sunday March 13, 2PM to 5PM.
