Mixed media shoe sculpture, painted leather brogue, 2022.

Salamat: ‘The main idea came from my interest in founded objects. I have always collected objects that people don’t need any more, like shoes. Shoes can reflect the character of their owners and I try to tell their stories. This shoe was owned by an immigrant and it’s about the hard times he had experienced.’
