Converse ‘Made By You.’
International icons including Patti Smith, Jefferson Hack, Andy Warhol and Glenn O’Brien, as well as British creative spirits from various fields including Agi & Sam, Sibling, Sean Frank, Sam Taylor and Shay Ola have offered their personal pairs of Chuck Taylor’s for sneaker portraits. The images showcase the diversity of wearers and the stories they have to tell.
Each creative spirit has also shared their Six Word Story, a snapshot of their Chucks experience and life attitude.
London Chuck fans also have their own chance to celebrate their stories and their sneakers, as one of our local creatives, artist Damilola Odusote, will create an original Made by you art installation in Shoreditch. Damilola Odusote is a Nigerian born artist based in London, whose sculptures combine everyday objects with abstract techniques to challenge our perceptions.
Supported by students from Central Saint Martins, Damilola will construct the unique and striking installation by hand within a gallery space on London’s Shoreditch high street.
