Shoes: A Total Work of Art?

It’s not every day you get a pair of shoes covered in naked men arrive in your inbox…but today was that day.

All is not what it originally seemed tho, as this wasn’t someone trying to sell me some saucy footwear – it was a preview of some of the works of art that will be available at the Chelsea Art Fair next weekend.

This particular piece is a fibre-glass shoe by artist Maria Mari Murga – which will be one of hundreds at the fair at Chelsea Town Hall.

We’ve had the event listed on our calendar pages for a while now, but with the event looming closer (it takes place form 11th-14th April), it’s interesting to take a look at what is in store during the exhibition.

Artists to be shown will include Mary Fedden, Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst, John Piper and Lelia Pissaro as well as the sculptor Philip Jackson CVO. Pieces of art will range from £500 at the lower end, to £20,000 for those who are more eager to make an investment.

There will be 35 galleries represented in total, showing contemporary and modern art from a combination of new and well known Artists from the UK and abroad.

The show will be benefiting two UK charities, Parkinson’s UK and Hearing Dogs and visitors have a chance to support the charities by buying specially selected works of art for which part of the sale will go directly to each charity.

The full list of Artists showing and tickets are available here. It will be a fantastic day out for anyone who enjoys art – so get your (free) tickets now!
