Weirdo Dave’s source for art is everyday magazines, and the more commonplace, the better. His doomsday collage poetry is about angst, anger and pain. There are moments of despair and hope, and sometimes even beauty, and it’s all done with just scissors, glue, paper and ones seriously disturbed mind.
This season Vans Syndicate worked with Weirdo Dave on a new rendition of the Authentic silhouette, dubbed “China Girl Summer.” Fresh off of his workfor Dover Street Market New York, the artist (aka Dave Sandey or Fuck This Life) combines camouflage with custom collage prints, executing the shoe with a full canvas upper and lining. At the interior, this sneaker features a special UltraCush™ HD footbed for superior impact absorption, as well as Vans’ signature waffle gum tread at the bottom.
