I first felt in love with work of Raul De Nieves in the editorial above, Singular Beauties by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld in Harper's Bazaar September 2013 issue. The spread was about diversity and women, but all I could think about were those shoesssss (and that good CDG Siamese Twin moment Carine created). Then again in March his work appeared in Rave New World by Panos Yiapanis in W mag.
Originally from Mexico, Raul now lives and works in Brooklyn. He is an artist/musician/performance artist and is represented by a gallery in Sweden.
I would love to own one of these figures. I find his work to be so exciting and fun!!
He seems wild. (which I love)
