High Heels

This is the latest window display at the Bata Shoe Museum on Bloor St. I had watched the artist paint those squares on the background over at least 2 weeks - he taped off each square and then painted a colour and then would tape off for the next colour, etc! A very patient man although he did seem to stop for a lot of smoke breaks. I missed the installation of the 3-D shoes made from inter-locking rectangles. I could find no info on the window's designer at all. In the reflection along the right side of the window you can see the Bloor St United Church which is across the street.

Great patience on his part, the smoking delaying further to get done. Very creative and colorful. I like it!

That is pretty interesting. Many display window designers are creative.

Very cool.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

I wonder if the high heel artist noticed how his heels almost resembles the design of the church. Perhaps the layers of windows gave him the inspiration.

My wife claims that high heel shoes were invented by a man who hated women.

I'm familiar with the artist. His name is Thomas McAneney. He does many of the window displays for Bata Shoe Museum.
