Nike commission young artists for Air Max 270 React bespoke pieces
To celebrate the launch of the latest Air Mix 270 React, Nike commissioned a group of young artists to implement their own colourways, all inspired by a specific modern art movement.
Featuring touches of Impressionism, Pop Art, Bauhaus, American Modern, Mid Century, Optical Art, Psychedelic and Geometric, each of the seven trainers tells its own unique story.
Each artist has based their trainer's colourway on their own interpretation of their assigned art movement. Names of the artists, their art and what their work relates is shown below.
Bauhaus / Moses Adesanya / @moadesanya
Geometric / Jasmin Sehra / @jasminsehra
Mid Century / Denzel Kessie / @bllackline
Psychedelic / HAM the illustrator / @hamtheillustrator
Impressionism / Koby Martin / @koby_martin
American Modern / Kingsley Nebechi / @kingsleynebechi
Optical / Erin Aniker / @erinaniker
The Air Max 270 collection is available now from Nike and other selected retailers.
