The Boy and The Girl
2nd Place, TW2NTY-FIV5 Global Art Contest
In October, 2015, CAT Footwear Turkey approached me asking to be their artist to design a pair of Colorado boots. 2016 is the 25th year of these world-renowned iconic boots and CAT Footwear is celebrating with a series of contests and events. One of them was this global design contest where hundreds of artists from 139 countries participated.
As an animation director, painting a pair of boots was a completely new challenge to me. When I was thinking about a concept, I wanted it to be something universal. And here’s the result:
The Boy and The Girl, a pair of Colorado boots about love.
The Nature of Art
In Summer of 2016, CAT Footwear UK asked 25 artists to paint another pair of Colorado boots. This time, we were expected to be inspired by a selection of CAT Footwear’s brand attributes: Tough, Bold, Dedicated, Authentic, Dynamic. So I designed The Nature of Art. Here you can see and read my ideas in detail, as well as other artist’s works.
