About Paul Meeuwsen & Ross Meeuwsen : Designed by collectors, for collectors, Kingdom Sneakers is a limited-edition run of luxe sneakers. The first signature Kingdom sneakers in white is the product of a handshake between brothers Paul and Ross Meeuwsen and their close friend Greg Harris. Sadly, prior to the release of the first shoe, Harris lost his life to mental illness, leaving the brothers vowing to continue his entrepreneurial legacy. Hailing from Melbourne, the partners at Kingdom have certainly not compromised on the craft, with each of the limited edition pairs individually numbered and laser engraved. They also feature rare earth magnetized straps, electroplated gold accessories, full-grain premium leather and a luxury cushioned innersole.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Art and design isn't about the designer it about reflecting issues and solving problems. In a more divided world than ever art and design has a strong roll to play in uniting people around shared beliefs and appreciating the differences. The public discourse is currently holding us back at a higher level. Thats why people are being creative in their local communities around what they can effect both here and now. As and educator I am constantly inspired by how students are not only engaged creatively but focus their thinking and skills on how they can make a difference. As professionals we love to mentor young creatives in the strategies and steps required for their ideas to become real and the next round of thought leaders.
