Fuelling creativity through community, here's a glimpse into the creative mind of MTL's Pony.
Q: How can art be inclusive?
A: I think when you are respectful, open-minded and conscious of the world that you live in it will reflect in your art.
Q: Does your city have a specific youth culture? What does the youth mean to your city?
A: The people of Montreal are very supportive of young artists that are trying to bring something new to the table.There is a huge underground art scene, and Montreal has always been known as a fertile playground for creation. We definitely love to support and watch young creators blossom.
Q: With everything going on today how important is Art in today’s society? How can art be a vector for change?
A: I think we all feel and we all need to express, but we don’t always feel as we have the ability to do so. In my opinion, we need artists to say what we cannot and to learn about others. I cannot imagine a world without art. In all situations, art gives us the ability to see the world through someone else’s eyes, and that inevitably creates a change in how we view the world.
Part work of art. Part street-style essential. The Mx3 sneaker is a canvas for self expression. Noted for her humorous interpretations of pop-culture, Montreal-based illustrator Pony created this limited-edition design. Featuring a breathable mesh upper and TFU webbing-enforced eyelets, this seamless, yet flexi-fit sneaker is set on a cushioned heel and pyramid raised sole, for shock absorption and traction.
Speaking of stepping outside the box: For a limited-time, get a free matching drawstring bag with your Aldo Mx3 artist series sneaker, available while quantities last.
