Masaya Kushino Explores Transformation Through Sculptural Shoes

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Japanese fashion designer Masaya Kushino expresses his surrealist imagination through his sculptural footwear. His recent shoe-sculpture series, “Bird-Witched,” explores the transformation of a tall pump into a feathery creature. The sculpture series is currently on view in the Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition, “Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe.” His other recent series, “Reborn,” examines the cyclical qualities of nature. With each successive piece in the series, we see a shoe overgrown with plant life wither, wilt, catch fire, and eventually flourish once again.
