Invented in 1917, the iconic converse trainer has a deep and rich history; from helping athletes at the start of basketball legacy in America, to the shoe of choice for punks, metalheads and grunge movements in the later 20th century. It originally represented sporting prowess and later evolved into a symbol of individualism and counter-cultures due to their many colours and ease of personalisation. Here, Pascale Taurua conveys the iconic shoes in contrasting black and white with torn skinny jeans. Perhaps a nod to the punk and grunge movements aforementioned, she has also created a beautiful dramatic contrast with a pastel pink background, making the colour and silhouette of the sitter pop and reflecting a sense of female fashion rebellion.
From classic examples of golden 20th century fashion to cutting edge contemporary styles, Pascale Taurua harnesses the glamour and allure of fashion through her brightening artworks. Shop our full portfolio of Pascale Taurua here or explore more fashion themed art on our shop page.
