Shoe Doctor Sign

Hand-painted by street-artist Babs Arts in his studio in Kumasi, Ghana, this vibrant Shoe Doctor sign celebrates the smoothest slides and bangin' brogues.

Before the dawn of the digital age, street painters in Ghana made commercial signs to advertise a wide spectrum of products and professions – from movies, discotheques, cobblers, tailor shops, health and religious institutions to the new on-trend hairstyles. Babs Arts is one of the artists who once produced cinema posters and now paints shop signs to order, keeping this amazing art-form alive and kicking with audiences appreciating their artistic value across the globe.

This show-stopping piece is a rare find and a true bespoke work of art!
