  • Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL + Birkenstock, Curated by Arkitip

    Reported by Arkitip, Inc., 11 February 2014, 17:31 PM

    Acting as curator, Arkitip is proud to announce our collaboration with Alumni Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL & Birkenstock.

    It is both an unexpected, yet completely organic partnership. Birkenstock reflect the roots and quality that 55DSL prides itself in, while our support of emerging artists resonates with 55DLS’s commitment to helping upcoming talents have a loudspeaker for their art.

    Andrea Rosso of 55DSL himself has deep admiration for Birkenstock, describing the brand as “iconic”.

    “I’ve been wearing Birkenstock for years and have always admired their timeless styling and the high quality craftsmanship that is so evident in each pair. Bringing Arkitip into the fold was a natural choice, as I admire their support of young emerging artists. I look forward to seeing what the final result is!“

    The video was shot during the process of painting the large scale mural, capturing the paint that was organically applied simultaneously to the Birkenstock sandals. Similar to what we do with the Chronicles, this video will give the viewer a closer look at the process, inspirations and direct provenance of the product created by the artist.

    Aaron made the trip from the streets of San Francisco to the hills of northern Italy to hand paint a large scale mural at the 55DSL HQ in Breganze. The Birkenstocks were lined up underneath the 50ft artwork where during the process of painting, intentionally directed flecks and drips directly from the paintbrush customized each sandal with organic white patterns — ensuring that each pair produced is a one off part of this limited edition run. In his own words, De La Cruz describes the project as:

    “…one big happy family affair to work with Arkitip, 55DSL and Birkenstock. This is a very exciting and inspirational challenge; I am excited to simultaneously create a mural while having the excess paint create a design of their own on the sandals.”

    You can read an interview with Andrea Rosso & Aaron De La Cruz on Collaborating with Birkenstock and Arkitip.

    The Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL & Birkenstock Monterey Sandal will be accompanied by a sweatshirt and a tee shirt featuring black-on-black patterns mirroring the mural’s design.

    We hope you appreciate the results, thank you for the support.

    About HIGH MATH:
    Gathering past, present and future contributors, Arkitip uses the aforementioned principles as a foundation to pull together a motley crew of diverse artists for a group show entitled HIGH MATH. Named to describe the unusual relationship between the artists; be it string theory or chaos, the show consists primarily of work on paper including silk screens, lithographs and hand-done originals. Artists will exhibit both existing and never before seen work.

    About Slow Culture:
    Slow Culture is an independent art gallery + retail project space located in the historic Northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park. Opened in August 2013, we have rebuilt the bones of what was once THIS Gallery, into a multi-purpose creative space. There is an art gallery with a thoughtfully-constructed floor plan to allow for flexible programming options such as: artist exhibitions + installations, lectures, workshops, creative meetings and retail pop-ups. The retail aspect of the space has also been extended to offer a carefully curated selection of books, zines, art prints, and various curios. We believe that by fusing every aspect of our business together, we can offer a more enriching and integrated experience between consumer, artist and ourselves.

  • Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL + Birkenstock, Curated by Arkitip

    Reported by Arkitip, Inc., 7 February 2014, 13:17 PM

    Acting as curator, Arkitip is proud to reveal our upcoming collaboration with Alumni Aaron De La Cruz for 55DSL & Birkenstock.

    The pair features an all-black base with a specially molded footbed for unparalleled support and comfort, with Aaron de La Cruz’ expertise appearing on the ankle and midfoot straps. These are accented with hand-applied white paint spatters, making each pair unique. Finishing touches include metal buckles embossed with the BIRKENSTOCK logo and the collaborating brands stamped into the footbed.

    Aaron made the trip from the streets of San Francisco to the hills of northern Italy to create his first Italian wall mural. The Birkenstocks were lined up underneath the 50ft artwork where during the process of painting, intentionally directed flecks and drips directly from the paintbrush customized each sandal with organic white patterns — ensuring that each pair produced is a one off part of this limited edition run. We will release the “making of” video in the coming weeks.

    San Francisco based artist Aaron De La Cruz cryptic line work invokes an archeological inquisition that is suggestive of both ancient Mayan hieroglyphics and contemporary graffiti, allowing the viewer to relate, interpret and decipher the work on their own terms.

    From his large matte black inverted sculptures, large scale outdoor murals and his stark two dimensional ink paintings, De La Cruz bridges the gaps between fine art and design, the sum of its parts being simultaneously both practical and decorative.

    Further information forthcoming.
