|Mark Wigan is one of the UK's most influential graphic artists.He creates social and cultural hieroglyphs for our time. His vivid landscapes team with schematic figures, neon skeletons, boss eyes, wiggy antenna, plants, totemic forms and Jungian ark of hybrid creatures which form intricate patterns within a techni-colour chaos of paint.|
|The collection includes 6 footwear styles in three different prints and a nylon backpack. For both the white and black Buffalo style Padded Collar 6-Eye Boot and the 3-Eye 8053 Shoe, Wigan has created prints exclusively to Dr. Martens. These unisex styles carry his signature on each tongue and an array of unique graphics. 'In Full Global Effect' is printed on the quarter panel of the boot, which neatly summarises Wigan's fascination with the colourful world of clubs and night-life.|
|For the 8-Eye Core Print Pascal Boot and Core print 1461 3-Eye Shoe, a segment of one of Wigan's original paintings from a Soho nightclub in the 1980s has been printed on the new Multi Kaboom Softy T leather. Wigan intended the brash detail of his art to disorientate clubbers with its hectic, neon patterns.|
|For 'Party People' 8 eye boot and 3 eye shoe black and white line drawing feature high profile characters from the Wag Club in the 1980s, such as Vivienne Westwood, Andy Warhol, Stephen Jones, Lee Bowery and Steve Strange has been applied to Softy T-Leather. Reminiscent of Buffalo style's monochrome fascination but also of alternative graphic novels and cartoon culture.|
