After recently presenting the Basketballs of MAROK and FRANK 151 feat. STAY HIGH 149 and Bill McMullen from the “4 Elements 4 Icons 4 Basketballs” series, we can now give you an exclusive first look at the fourth and last part of the project featuring artist Mode2.
MODE2 is a “living legend” – one of Europe’s most prominent artists in general, and a central figure of graffiti culture worldwide. Graffiti’s “thinking man” has painted and exposed his work all over the globe and is notorious for his „Battle of the Year“ designs. His sophisticated illustrations make Mode2 one of the most interesting icons in streetart today. The EARTH design features a new twist on Mode’s famous character drawings: a ballplayer.
Make sure to check out the video here below, with the artist giving some background on himself and the project.
The official global release event will take part @ Overkill Shop (Berlin) on 21/01/2010.
