Artist creates 12 shoes for 12 exes
Part fashion, part art, part voyeurism, artist Sebastian Errazuriz's show, "12 Shoes for 12 Lovers," is the hit of this year's annual Art Basel show in Miami. The 36-year-old Errazuriz has created a dozen shoe-themed pieces, all serving as tributes to (and takedowns of) his 12 exes, ranging from the Ice Queen: Sophie to the Heart Breaker: Laura. These are paired with personal anecdotes about what exactly defined that ex to him and ultimately inspired the designs. The stories are alternately racy, wistful, bizarre and brutally honest (though most first names have been changed to protect privacy). "I've never done anything like this before," Errazuriz tells Yahoo. "It was incredibly difficult. I had to think of the 12, and then how best to capture a small part of their essence."
