“Shoes and spray for kids to bike away”

Going once, going twice . . . sold! Thus went 16 pairs of Converse Chuck Taylor shoes. They were transformed from their regular iconic selves into works of art or acute curiosity by some of Cebu’s top designers, artists and some walk-in customers to Tapas Lounge.
The auction of the shoes was very animated,.

with moments of real suspense and even some comic relief when one girl bid against herself and, successfully, too. The high point of the auction though was with Budoy’s piece, a heavily taped up box that had a light bulb helicopter on top. It proved, when opened by the eventual winner, to be just a simple untouched shoe that Budoy then offered to sign.
Nevertheless, this was the highest earner for the night that garnered close to P40,000 for the auction’s beneficiary, the Bike 4 U foundation.
Meanwhile, outside, graffiti artists Ivan Zaldariagga, Mark Copino and a spirited volunteer, Markus and Jen did graffiti art on two separate 8 ft x 10ft boards that attracted many of the Saturday night crowd at the Crossroads.
Later, when the graffiti guys were putting the finishing touches to their boards, inside it had become a free-for-all break dancing and hip hop grooving led by DJ Scientific and the 6000 Goonz.

This event, “A Night of Graffiti All Star Bites,” was a joint production of Bite Magazine, Converse and Tapas Lounge with support from Absolut.
