When I saw the work of Mark Schwartz, I new instantly that I had to talk with him about his creative endeavors. Mark Schwartz transforms every shoe maven's dream into a stunning piece of art through the use of vibrant colors and abstract forms. We have kept in touch through his emails informing me of his art sales and I am always amazed at the beauty of his technique. He has worked with the likes of Andy Warhol and was a protege of the great designer, Roger Vivier. While the paintings are abstract in nature, the viewer's eye is ultimately drawn to the shape of a sexy, strappy sandal or a pointy toed stiletto. One is engrossed in a sea of flowing lines, whimsical brush strokes and intense color saturation not often seen in watercolors.
Now the artist has taken the next step, incorporating his extraordinary works into a fashion collection of wearable art. Schwartz's collection includes functional pieces such as tote bags and tee shirts splashed with images of his high-heeled art. Women's long and short sleeved tee's, handbags, and totes make up the flagship line with future additions to include home decor and dinnerware. Schwartz will make a personal appearance at the Pool Trade Show, Las Vegas, to promote his new collection.
