INSA’s Sh*t Shoes

Graffiti artist INSA responds to Chris Ofili's work at Bring The Noise, a youth event at Tate Britain.

Well, here’s a treat.

As part of the Chris Ofili exhibition at Tate Britain, the gallery played host to Bring The Noise – a project to encourage emerging artists, musicians and fashion designers to respond to Ofili’s work.

Super stylist, publisher and owner of WAH Nails Sharmadean Reid worked her magic on the fingers of the fashion-conscious, and graffiti artist INSA made, erm, these…

Taking his insipration from Ofili’s work quite literally, believe it or not, these fabulous stilettos are part leather, part… elephant dung. Yeah, you heard me!

I’m not sure they’ll be available in the shops, or if there’s much of a market for this kind of thing, but aren’t they incredible to look at? INSA’s synonymous graphic style is applied to the shoe, with almost delicate beading used as the sole.
