Fuelling creativity through community, here's a glimpse into the creative mind of NYC's Buff Monster.
Q: How can art be inclusive?
A: Pablo Picasso said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up”.
Q: How important is collaboration to your artistic progress? What does this particular collaboration mean to you?
A: Collaboration offers an opportunity to work in a new way or to work on a project that you wouldn’t have done on your own. I think people like to see what happens when two individual entities that they know come together to create something new. Ideally 1 + 1 = 3.
Q: With all the great artists in your city, how do you feel you broke out? (Luck, hard work, a mentor, specific style or technique etc.)
A: All the things you mentioned are really important and all contribute to success. One thing that I’m always aware of and in pursuit of is consistency. Consistency is not an innate human trait, but it really is the sign of a professional.
Part work of art. Part street-style essential. The Mx3 sneaker is a canvas for self expression. Noted for her humorous interpretations of pop-culture, Montreal-based illustrator Pony created this limited-edition design. Featuring a breathable mesh upper and TFU webbing-enforced eyelets, this seamless, yet flexi-fit sneaker is set on a cushioned heel and pyramid raised sole, for shock absorption and traction.
Speaking of stepping outside the box: For a limited-time, get a free matching drawstring bag with your Aldo Mx3 artist series sneaker, available while quantities last.
From its conception, our Mx collection has genuinely intended to celebrate all individuals. At this time, we are working through the process of introducing a non binary sizing approach, stay tuned. Sizing is listed is US feminine and masculine sizes.
