Turning work boots into works of art
Footwear company asked artists to use their boots as a canvas. The results are pretty incredible.
Caterpillar Footwear's boots are popular the world over. Their Colorado boot has been a staple in workwear since 1991. Its makers decided to ring in the quarter-century anniversary by asking artists around the world to use the boot as their canvas. The results range from wildly creative to wondrously psychedelic.
For Tel Aviv, Israel-based graphic artist Ben Amoyal (aka Benchuk), a boot in the likeness of an ice cream cone turned out to be a winning recipe, earning him a place in Caterpillar Footwear's 25th anniversary design project. His design, pictured above, looks almost good enough to eat.
In Benchuk's line of work, he said he typically creates animal-inspired art, so the ice cream illustration is a bit of a departure. But the idea of finding unconventional materials and giving them new life through his art is right up his alley.
