Nike has commissioned a number of international artists to paint 17 murals across its NYC garage in Beaverton, Oregon.
The building, which currently holds six parking levels, draws inspiration from the sporting heritage of NYC, with basketball, futsal and handball courts located in its central courtyard.
Each commissioned mural utilizes different artistic practices, ranging from patterns and graffiti to typography and portraiture. Hailing from 1o different countries, the artists in question include: Stash, SP One, CHINO BYI, FAUST, Grotesk, Felipe Pantone, GOREY, DAIM, Tones One, Gary Stranger, Yoon Hyup, SPETO, Claw Money, Nardstar*, Paola Delfin, Hueman and Ashley Montague.
While many of the artists have collaborated with Nike before, the mural project symbolizes the brand’s regular interaction with the global street art community. “It’s diversity at its best,” says Nike VP and Creative Director Van Horne. “There’s no one artist who paints the same way.”
Check out the murals in the gallery above, and for more on the project visit Nike’s website.
