Paint on Shoes

Chaitalee So­honi

India Today - - COVER STORY -

When I paint I never get tired, even if I have worked the whole night and have to start a new piece in the morn­ing,” says Chaitalee So­honi, 26, who paints on shoes to trans­form plain white can­vas run­ners into works of art with pop cul­ture themes. So­honi also paints on T-shirts and bot­tles, “or just about any sur­face, in­clud­ing toi­let pa­per roll.” It was quite a ca­reer switch for So­honi who had a de­gree in biotech­nol­ogy and a lu­cra­tive ca­reer ahead of her but de­cided to even­tu­ally give it all up to pur­sue her pas­sion in­stead. “It wasn’t easy but cer­tainly worth it,” she says.
