Aaron Firestein

Founder and Chief Artist at BucketFeet


Aaron Firestein is the founder of BucketFeet, launched in 2001 after a chance meeting in Argentina between two strangers – one an artist and one who was backpacking around the world. A pair of hand-drawn shoes ended up inspiring thousands of conversations with amazing people on six continents, and showed us the power of art to bring people together. Based in Chicago, BucketFeet is on a mission to connect people through art by tapping into the creativity and diversity of the world.
