My name is Sheriff and I paint things. Stuff on things, but especially stuff on shoes.
Born in Sri Lanka with a pencil in my hand, papers have never been enough and few years ago, shoe customizing took over my whole world when I spontaneously started to draw with a black marker on a pair of white shoes I had.
Since I landed in France, where I keep painting commissioned-dreams on shoes, I now work with my faithful partner and wife who is a photographer, in a team that we call Kustom Kix. We basically offer each and every person out there the privilege to create their unique pair of customized shoes by painting absolutely anything they desire on it.
When it comes to inspiration, the best part is that there aren't any limitations. If we at any moment take a detailed look around us, you'll notice the simple examples of inspiration lurking around all over the place. Life itself is an endless cycle of inspiration. Personally, my favorite place to drown my creative senses in order to acquire inspiration are the Heavens above us.
Night or day, the skies never fail to make one wonder upon the bottomless depths of inspiration. Some of them so grandeur that we are bound by the laws of physics to only be able to observe from a safe distance of hundreds and thousands of light years away!
