Elevation Print by Geneviève Gauckler

The Art & Sole screenprint series is an ongoing project featuring specially commissioned artworks by leading artists and designers from around the globe. Previous artworks in the series have included Sole Inspector by James Jarvis, Totem by Kustaa Saksi, The City by Ben Drury and Beer, Waffles and Nuts (in collaboration with Nike) by Jiro Bevis.

The fifth in their series is by Geneviève Gauckler; a French artist, illustrator and art director who is probably best known for her ever-evolving procession of lovable characters. Gauckler's accomplished career has seen her working for French record label F Communications (with Laurent Garnier and St. Germain), on music promos for Dimitri from Paris, Pierre Henry and Sparks (with directors Kuntzel & Deygas), plus commercials for the likes of Yves Saint Laurent.

Entitled Elevation, Gauckler's artwork for Art & Sole features a figure wearing a jetpack and some 'powerful' sneakers. 'The figure is ready to press the button and fly,' explains Gauckler, 'with sneakers that are perfectly suited for such a thrilling adventure. It’s important to feel well grounded before leaving the ground!'

Each print is a limited edition of 50, and is emboss stamped, signed and numbered by the artist. To enhance the futuristic theme of the piece, the artwork has also been screenprinted on to a metallic silver paper using opaque white, black and purple inks.
