Babbu the Painter "Kesar" x Solepack
ONLY 30 bags cut - of our SP-1 sneaker carrier + Omega backpack kit
The Babbuthe painter "Kesar" piece is next up in our creative series of products that use our innovative sneaker carriers and as #MovingPieces of art.
BIo: Babbuthepainter is a Toronto based creative entrepreneur and the founder of her globally recognized style of modern desi diaspora pop-art. Babbu has manifested the unheard voice of South Asian millennials in her artwork worldwide. And has made a name for herself and for her artwork across North America being featured in shows such as The Mindy Project.
Through the artist's eyes:When I was approached to do a collaboration with the sneaker bag brand Solepack I instantly had a vision of the illustration I wanted to create. Perception, prejudice, identities, womanhood, and their interpretation are themes that have been incorporated into my art since the beginning. I wanted to translate some of those themes into this collaboration. So, we created “Kesar” a first-generation Punjabi-Canadian teenager from Toronto, that wears both her identities proudly. She loves to play basketball and has a freakishly large sneaker collection for a teenager.....Kesar felt right for this collaboration as there is such a lack of brown female diaspora representation within the mainstream sports, sneaker world. We hope you love our collaboration as much as we loved making it.
