Platform Six & adidas
Towards the end of last year, a number of artists and supporters of not-for-profit arts organisation Platform Six were approached to create 20 individual art pieces using the adidas Stan Smith as a blank canvas...
Part of a wider exhibition showcasing art by both emerging and established lesbian, gay and bisexual artists, the Stan Smith artworks were created specfically to be sold through an auction to raise money for gay equality charity Stonewall. Various artists and celebrities from the worlds of fashion, film and music took part in the project, including notable names such as Boy George, Elton John and Sharleen Spiteri. Kate Moss also created an artwork for the auction, as well as collaborating with adidas to produce a very limited 10-pair run of individually sized Stan Smith sneakers (shown bottom).
In order of appearance, the artworks shown here are by Sharleen Spiteri, Elton John, Kylie Minogue, William Baker, Judy Blame, and Kate Moss
