I Make Shoes To Tell My Stories (Part 2)
Greek born Israeli artist Costa Magarakis specializes in shoe sculptures. A world renowned “shoesmith”, he relocated to the edge of the Shoe Galaxy.
The characters that take the center stages in his fables could have easily jumped out of a Victorian Era dark novel.
Treading the line between sculpture and story-telling, his heeled figurines symbolize quirky personalities, witch stand alone as a pop art.
His sculptures would definitely be in the art collection of Jules Verne, Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson and Edgar Allan Poe if the were alive today. All of the sculptures are made of reinforced stone hard resin and are not actual shoes. You can also see the previous post here.
