Chris Francis at the A + D Museum

Chris Francis, my favorite shoe artist, has some very unusual footwear on exhibit at the A + D Museum in downtown LA.
Chris Francis, Cages In the Sky
Inspired by Brutalist architecture, he challenged himself to create impossible shoes.
Chris Francis, Hard Cuts and St. Vincent's Default
Chris Francis, Tower Blocks
Chris Francis, Hardscape
Chris Francis, Invisibleism
I sketched these while Chris was explaining his design process during a curatorial walk-through last month.

The installation is part of the group exhibition Come In! DTLA, up until 6/23/16.
The A + D Museum is located in the Arts District, 900 E. 4th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90013 (enter on Colyton).
