For the latest in its Art of SNKRS series,
Recognizable Atlanta landmarks such as Peachtree St., the downtown skyline and a MARTA train get turned into quirky characters in the piece. Taking cues from Nike’s popular Air Jordan 1 “Banned” colorway, the work is painted in black and white with splashes of red adding color throughout. Meanwhile, a large Air Max sneaker and an “AIR” illustration add striking logo placements.
“If I’m able to create something that somebody can look at and that will make them pick up a paint brush, a pencil, a camera…get out in the world and try something they haven’t tried before, I think it’s a success. That’s always the goal, to hopefully inspire future generations like other artists have inspired me.” – Mike
The installation is located in the West Midtown area of Atlanta and will be open to the public until Saturday, March 30.
