Artist creates 'love mural' in Williamsburg with shoes

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

A mural went up Saturday in Williamsburg made up of paint and 25 pairs of shoes.

Artist James Goldcrown travels around the world painting his famous "love walls." He's completed more than 30 of his signature art works since he started about three years ago.

Goldcrown stuck the shoes Saturday to a white wall arranged in the shape of a heart.

Goldcrown is collaborating with Australian shoe company Rollie, that is making its U.S. debut in Brooklyn.

Rollie has pop-up shops around the city and a design studio in Williamsburg, and the company wanted to create an installation to let Brooklyn know they have arrived.

The shoes will be taken off the wall after the paint has dried, some of which will be auctioned off and others sold directly from Rollie.
