CARIUMA + Baron Von Fancy
We're so proud to present our sneaker collaboration with a contemporary artist that seeks to push all of the boundaries in his work through his use of bold color, innovative materials and provocative sayings.
From where do you draw inspiration?
From everywhere, be it a movie quote or a conversation I've overheard on the train.
I am constantly listening and when something catches my ear I know I am going to end up drawing it.
What other disciplines/interests do you have that inform your art or process
Reading is probably the biggest interest that I have that informs my artwork as I am always looking for verbiage to draw.
Describe your work in three words
beautiful and fun.
Which artist (living or dead) would you want to share a meal with & why?
I love Richard Prince and think we would have the best time together.
Picking his jokester brain would be a dream of mine.
What advice would you give your 16 year-old self?
Stay patient and believe in yourself.
What made you want to collab with us?
I love the look of Cariuma sneakers and felt the shoes would be a great canvas for my artwork. The sneakers are the perfect mix of my verbiage and Cariuma's style.
The shading as an ode to Brazil is the detail I really love.
