Artist Sebastián Errázuriz, well known for his candidness and cheeky art endeavors, has created a series of uniquely designed shoes as an artistic and creative way of portraying his past experiences with previous lovers. The series, titled “12 Shoes For 12 Lovers
”, features shoes designed to reflect the personality of each of his 12 exes.
In this series, the artist worked with shoe brand Melissa
(the company responsible for creating those jelly flats that once used to be trendy) to create beautiful, 3D printed, teetering heels. Each avant garde high-heel that was specifically designed with the personality of Sebastián's ex in mind, comes along with a brief anecdote about or description of the girl who was once in his life.
The descriptions that accompany the shoes are a collection of funny, light-hearted stories about a bunch of women Sebastián dated and is creativity at it's emotional best. The stories and the shoes portray reality and diminish fantasies of “happily-ever-after” fairytale endings.
According to an interview with core77
, Sebastián revealed that some of his exes that he featured in this series have shown reactions. “'Honey' was very touched and said she didn't know she had that impact on me. 'Heart Breaker' wrote me an email to say she didn't know if she should feel incredibly embarrassed, enraged or honored but that if I ever revealed her real name she would kill me. 'Gold Digger' hates my guts.”
Put on a pair of shoes and enjoy the little trip down Sebastián's memory lane.
