High Heeled Art

Mark Schwartz made a name for himself as an accomplished shoe designer. For the past 25 years, he has traveled the world gaining inspiration for his ideas from artists like Andy Warhol, who Schwartz beneficially watched at work and Roger Vivier who he cultivated his talents with for 5 years. Both Warhol and Vivier encouraged Schwartz to continue his capricious approach to fabricate his artistic style of shoes. He is producing exciting work by taking advantage of the spontaneity and movement that shoes can create when drawn on paper.
Very few artists have attempted what Schwartz is pioneering. Mark exaggerates the usual way individuals view shoes by playing off the already artistic shapes of footwear and creates art that exudes personality. The artist’s work is collected worldwide by both private and corporate clients.
