A Checkered Past: No. 1 by 'H'

*Images are original works from 'Art by H's' collection

This was the first piece I produced when starting my journey to see if I could become a full time artist.

Having spent many years as a commercial artist working for clients, I found myself having to be my own client for the first time since the early days producing the Rave flyers in the late 80’s/early 90’s.

Looking down at my feet, and sporting a pair of re-issue check high top Vans, I thought about a few commission pieces I had produced in the past of old trainers.

People seem covet old shoes and trainers like they are part of their history, a souvenir or a memento of a past time.

I thought about when I had my first pair and all the crazy times I had as a kid skateboarding all over the place and being a general scallywag.

Now, many years later I was back on my board re-living (some of!) those times and felt compelled to produce this painting to capture that moment in my history and no doubt many others who had similar experiences!
