Nike “Come Out In Force” Sneakerball Sculpture in Madrid by Shane Griffin.
Nike Netherlands and Rosie Lees London commissioned designer Shane Griffin from NYC to create a sculpture for their annual SNEAKERBALL event, held this year in Palacio Cibeles, Madrid, Spain during the FIBA World Cup. Working closely Colin Cornwell at Nike, he created a piece that works on both printed material, and in the physical world with amazing results.
“I created a sculpture to work on both printed material, and in the physical world. This was a great opportunity to take my work off the screen, creating blueprint layouts from 3D geometry for the sculptuing process. The result was a viral sucess. The event was designed by Rosie Lees.” – Shane Griffin
Thematically absolutely perfect fit, the artist joined the legendary shoe models Air Jordan 1, Nike Air Force 1 and Nike Blazer with the basketball in his sport made of foam material artwork. Some pictures of the stunning Sneaker Ball Sculpture can be directly assessed here below.
