From paper to shoes
Posted in Art
Art, fashion and shoes.
These three elements met together at Francal from 2 to 5 July 2017 in Sao Paulo, at the exhibition “Do papel ao sapato” (“From paper to shoes”), by Enrique Rodríguez with Favini as main partner.
Enrique Rodriguez: a paper artist
Enrique Rodríguez is a designer and artist who uses paper to create sophisticated handmade relief collages.
Rodriguez is the author of Arquitetura de Papel (Paper Architecture), which explores the technique that overlaps three-dimensional paper structures of different sizes. This creates light and shadows through the openings of his chosen organic and geometric shapes.
Enrique Rodriguez‘s desire to make his art and technique available to everyone created a starting point for the project Universidade do Papel: The “University of Paper” that presents several styles of artistic expression created by using paper as the art medium.
“Do papel ao sapato” exhibition at Francal Show
During Francal 2017, the main Brazilian trade fair for footwear and fashion accessories, Rodríguez selected 16 artworks to interpret shoes by this same artistic concept which has characterised his career.
“The inspiration for this show came from my passion for shoe as a design object and the possibilities that it offers to intervene in shapes with my paper architectures,” says Rodriguez.
“Favini, with the colours of his papers, has opened a wide range of chromatic and artistic opportunity” the artist says.
For Rodriguez participation at this fair was also an opportunity to show how materials, in particular paper, plus creativity and courage, communicates through artistic form.
