just a quick post, yesterday we finally launched the fabulous limited edition hand painted Charlotte Olympia shoes at Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour, for Art Basel week, Miami. I was commissioned to hand paint 100 limited edition pairs of Charlotte Olympia’s signature Dolly shoe inspired by great 20th century artists. We created the Post Impressionist Dolly, the Abstraction Dolly, the Neo Plasticism Dolly, the Abstract Expressionism Dolly, the Cubism Dolly and finally the Pop Art Dolly!
I had great fun making and painting the shoes which spanned over 3 months. This post shows the fabulous launch with a personal appearance from Charlotte at the Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour Miami store, to coincide with Art Basel week. Plus i was exhibiting at Art Miami with The Cynthia Corbett Gallery (check out my Pop Art in this blog or at www.boyarde.com. Enjoy the pictures and there are more posts to read about the making of these gorgeous shoes.
