An area of focus for me is the unconventional canvas. I believe that art can (and probably should) be everywhere. #CodysWearableArt consists of hand-painted sneakers, jackets, and other apparel. I use this canvas knowing that it will be worn, either by myself, or someone else. It needs to command the attention of a viewer in passing. Unlike at a gallery show, they have not chosen to consider art at that moment. It is my job to make them.
My commission works are similar, but with strong consideration for the person ordering the piece. It has to be about them, not the people looking. They have to put it on, and feel one with the art.
Celebrities such as rappers, Nav and G-Eazy, and comedian Chris D'Elia are owners of Cody's hand-painted sneakers.
