Beloved UK artist Olaolu Slawn has the world at his feet, creating artwork inspired by London’s local communities. He is collaborating with eBay for a detailed art auction of two sneaker masterpieces, celebrating the thriving passion experienced across the UK.

Slawn recalls his love for footwear by creating dynamic paintings that embody his favorite pairs. The Corteiz x Nike Air Max 95 “Gutta Green” and Air Jordan 4 “Black Cat” take center stage, portrayed on 100x100cm canvases in his signature cartoon style.

All proceeds generated by both sales will be donated to Path to Possibilities — a Nigerian organization looking to transform the education system through extensive resource centers welcoming hundreds of children to gain library, computer, and free internet access.

Take a closer look at Olaolu Slawn’s paintings up for auction with eBay in the gallery above. Place your bids from November 2 at 12 p.m. BST on eBay.
