FILA Sneakers by James Rizzi
A collection of sneakers by the famous artist James Rizzi will realised in spring 2012 with the brand FILA.
For all those who knew James Rizzi and were close to him, his death on the second Christmas Day in 2011 has been totally unexpected and a big shock. His life-affirming art gave so many people pleasure and optimism. However, Rizzis dynamic creative potential continues, in his art work and in the hearts of the people.
Especially in Germany, Austria and Switzerland James Rizzi and his art work even yet has a huge fan community, many collectors admire Rizzis coloured New York impressions for over 20 years. Now a special Rizzi project will be also realised here, a “dream” preserved by James for many years: his own shoe collection. The series of sneaker designed by himself will be available from April, 2012 with the brand FILA. Rizzi had released enthusiastically the final designs still in December 2011 to the production, brought “his” sneakers so on the way.
James Rizzi 1950-2011
5. 10. 1950 – 26. 12. 2011
It’s with great distress and sorrow that we have to announce the death of James Rizzi. The world famous pop artist died peacefully in his sleep in his studio in SoHo, New York, the night after Christmas. His sudden and unexpected death comes as a shock to family, friends, and collectors alike.
James Rizzi became famous for the 3D paper sculptures he invented, the playful and childlike forms and bright colors of which were to become his artistic trademark. Thus he acquired a large international following across all age groups and classes. Another claim to fame came through the application of his distinctive style to a large variety of everyday objects – from Rizzi stamps to the Rizzi house, from Rizzi puzzles to the Rizzi jet plane, from Rizzi chinaware to Rizzi cars and trains. Throughout his life, Rizzi contributed to a number of charities, the wellbeing of children being particularly close to his heart. This is one of the reasons why a public school in Duisburg, Germany, bears his name since this year.
James Rizzi died in the city he was born in, New York, which influenced his life as well as his work greatly. He was in the middle of preparing for new projects when death struck him.
In James Rizzi the art world loses one of the last great pop artists, and we lose a good friend and a wonderful human being.
Jimmy, you will be missed.
