As part of the Sneakerness tradeshow taking place in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the art project “Future is Nature” was launched by Element footwear where one artist at each location of the tradeshow had created their individual artwork on a blank canvas. The results of each of their own depictions of the slogan are now being auctioned on Ebay for a good cause.

Each artist picked one institution that receives the auction proceeds. Representing Sneakerness Zürich, artist Thomas Koenig selected “The Rats Collectif”, an artist association that supports young local artists in terms of marketing, exhibitions and publicity. Representing Sneakerness Cologne, artist Tina Schwarz picked the “Nachbarschaftsheim Quäker”, a day-care center and youth club. Artist Moritz Wohlleb represents Sneakerness Vienna and chose kids hospital St. Anna Kinderspital to benefit from the good cause project.
