Alternative set: MOA - Master of Arts
MOA is the acronym for Master of Arts, footwear brand that will present at Pitti Uomo his SS 2017 collection of sneakers. Signature of the brand are the graphics and prints inspired by the world of figurative art and its biggest players.
Mr. Thoms, the versatile artist whose real name is Diego della Posta, is undoubtedly one of them being one of the most famous Italian street-artists in the world. Mr.Thoms plays with bright colors and geometric shapes to create movement. His great understanding of architecture and the body language allowed him to capture the essence of his characters.
MOA MA has asked Mr. Thoms to create original graphics for its models, giving rise to a creative collaboration at the highest rate.
To celebrate this union, MOA-Master of Arts has designed a double date, in the city and at the Fortezza:
On Tuesday, June 14, 2016, from 5pm at the Flow store in Via dei Vecchietti 22 in Florence, Mr. Thoms will customize MOA-Master of Arts shoes that can be purchased in super limited edition.
On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, at 11am, in the Central Pavilion Square at the Fortezza, the artist will dedicate to Pitti Uomo a special live performance of street art as Alternatives Set.
