PR9.NET November 05, 2012 - Los Angeles, CA - Art enthusiasts as well as fashion forward shoe collectors are welcome to view and reserve a piece of footwear history at the 2012 Branded Arts Exhibition. This 25,000 square foot mega gallery opening and epic party features extraordinary art, live music, in-person painting, and multiple bars. Curated by Branded Arts, this exciting art show will exhibit some of the most prolific artists of our time.
Reshaping men's footwear, Vijay incorporated Emmeric's classic paintings (shown below) into his 2013 Xcalibur shoe collection as they both join only a handful of duos to brand shoes "an authentic work of art." As chief creator of the collection, Vijay has been able to capture Emmeric's top-selling artwork using advanced high-resolution image technology on premium calfskin leathers to create a series of handmade shoes ranging from formal lace ups to classic loafers.

Emmeric's artistic work has been compared to the edgy pop artists of the late seventies and the early eighties, but with his own personal vision, at once perverse and strangely satirical. Inspired by Walt Disney's humorous creations and by the intensity of such artist as Otto Dix, Goya and De Kooning, Konrad gravitates to the darker side of the human psyche. With childlike images of pigs, dogs, mice, and people replete with exaggerated attributes, Konrad's paintings are happily manic expressions of equally innocent and painfully troubled characters interacting and willfully acting out. He delights in bringing his unique inner world to the canvas.
