Stephane Manel’s Dwyane Wade Mural


Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade's new signature shoe for Converse hits stores today and for a launch party last week in New York, French artist Stephane Manel created this 12' x 36' mural. As Manel says, the piece "translate[s] Wade's movement to catch the ball bouncing on the multi-color lines of the basketball court." Manel, along with Sebastien Agneessens (curator and founder of Formavision), co-curated a shoe gallery that traced the history of Converse from the first Chucks (dating back to around the turn-of-the-century) to Wade's contribution.
