Shoes with Faces

Gwen Murphy transforms old shoes into unique characters with scary faces.

The artist uses clay and acrylic paint to give each recycled shoe its own personality and facial expression.

    This might be the creepiest posting I’ve seen here.

  2. Bob

    BUT WHY??

  3. Kari Bradshaw

    innovative… but too frightening for me!

  4. Dean

    I will never sleep soundly again.

  5. Jessica

    I agree. This series is extremely disturbing. I am now inclined to burn old shoes.

  6. woops

    I used to think about this when I’d put on my shoes as a kid… but rather than the idea that the shoe is eating my foot, I always felt sorry that I was stuffing my foot in its mouth. Twisted childhood. I know.

  7. Art of Concept

    That’s just weird! As art OK though, I believe they are not to be used…

    Well, I suppose it gives new meaning to the tongue of a shoe… And it definitely adds some soul… *Ba donk tssss*

    I can see these ideas being used as part of the set design for a Tim Burton film.

  14. Kimmo

    I have to lock the door to my shoes every night from now on. Thank you very much! Cool idea though :)

  17. LolaPallooza

    Doesn’t it remind of some old cartoon in the 80-90’s, something like a Shoe Village and the characters were shoes…??? It’s “shoe people” i think, not sure…but it was less creepier than those of course,hi,hi,hi…

  18. Moist Popcorn

    Wonderfull very original weird but exciting work. As a maskmaker myself I do know how difficult it is to find something not being done a hundred times.

  23. Cory

  24. Lilly
