Each artist designed an etnies Scout colorway along with t-shirts to compliment the footwear, creating a comprehensive artistic showcase.
Juan Travieso (born Havana, Cuba 1987), is an artist based in Miami and New York. His work explores notions of impermanence and decay through a combined language of pop, realism, and abstraction. His work is included in multiple collections throughout the United States and other parts of the world.
"The inspiration for the collaboration was solely Endangered Species. I am an advocate for biodiversity. I feel that our impact on the planet and our relationship to these species needs to be addressed in a more public context." -Juan Travieso
