Every shoe Arturo creates begins as a freehand sketch.
Once he has sketched an entire collection, Gorlini brings his drawings to the factories in Naples, Italy
to work with the technicians on how to build them in three dimensions.

His stylistic use of line, light and colour give the renderings an
impressionistic quality, making them works of art in their own right.





“Sketching is the act of me drawing my imagination.”






All Arturo Gorlini artistic inspiration comes mostly from his own life.

He likes to paint things that he experiences, that inevitably mark him.
Through his paintings, he simply loves to express himself trying to not please anyone except himself.

In the creative process, he tries to stay away from other shoes design not to contaminate his creativity and ingenuity.
