MaïProject is a French brand of shoes with a unique social engagement. As they say about themselves: “Wearing MaïProject means being part of a story. For each pair of MaïProject Purchased, 2 euros are given for a specific cause within a humanitarian Project.”
The textile shoes were hand-drawn as a part of the MaïProject Wear Artists initiative. They were a part of a larger series which also included a sweatshirt and a necklace made with Fimo clay. The shoes were hand-painted with acrylic paint and Uni Posca pens. There was a total creative freedom as to what should be the theme of drawing. The main idea behind it were the fetters of adulthood.
