Frankfurt am Main, 2015

By Arturo Laime



Like a mosaic or a puzzle, this artwork was made using images of brochures from local department stores. I cut and glued shoes and jackets found in ads from Karlstadt and Jack Wolfskin. Looking at the bright colors of the sports shoes, I immediately thought about the macaws I saw in the Amazon jungle. I used elements from the everyday life to approach in a new way the lifeforms of our planet. I find interesting the relationship between sports, fashion, and wildlife that take place here.
