The Inked Souls exhibit will spotlight the art of individual customization. Each invited artist will be given a pair of blank AKA Tagür sneakers to bring to life with their unique style and perspective, which ranges from urban graffiti to traditional oil on canvas, and from abstract to figurative interpretations. Their broad spectrum of chosen technique and adaptation, contrasted with the blank sneaker canvases promises to deliver an exciting look at the different artistic perceptions of these talented artists. As a part of the final exhibition, the artists will also complete a canvas piece to be exhibited above their customized sneakers so that the audience can see how they successfully bridged the gap between 2-D artistry and the third-dimension.

Among the sneakers being exhibited some of them will have an opportunity to become mass produced by Tagür which will be carried Nationwide in the Finishline retailers and Foot Action stores.  Many household name celebrities wear Tagür and support the brand.   The more support Tagür receives from consumers through purchased products, the more we can support the arts.
