Shoe LA 2018

Niels “SHOE” Meulman is a Dutch visual artist known for his gestural paintings merging graffiti and calligraphy. His mix of thousand-year-old Blackletter script, Japanese-brush attitude, and New York’s wildstyle sparked the Calligraffiti movement, with SHOE proclaiming “a word is an image and writing is painting.”
