Art can only be performed statically? Or, are the galleries the only venue where art can be exhibited? Can art walk? Ofcourse it can, even through every edges of the world. In 2010, Serap Öney took the first step for her long-running project The Walking Art under the manifesto of spreading the art to everyone on this planet. Her ideology was very simple and bold. Shoes, which are the most basic accessory of humanity which go with them wherever they go and even assist people to arrive their destination, certainly they have the strongest material to perform art on which the artist completely needs. Thanks to the textile training she had attained at the vocational high school and the fashion skills she had acquired at her first university, she quickly established the necessary infrastructure and began to work on her new canvases, a.k.a shoes. By 2017, the first step of the project has provided access beyond its goals. Hundreds of people in more than 25 countries on 6 continents began to describe the power of art and its ability to change things everywhere they went with Serap Öney signed handmade shoes. Now it's time to move on to the second phase of the project, join forces of everlasting friends art and craft, to transform the World in a better place.
