Nike celebrates the "Free Expression" Artist Series with Ton Mak, AKA FLABJACKS. A Shanghai-based artist, she goes for a loud approach with a rainbow-like approach with hues, shades and her trademark cartoon creatures.
The press release has this to say: “Ton began creating various characters and narratives after graduating from University College London as an Anthropology student. Tying together her love for art, ethnography and story-telling, Flabjacks are often visual representations of the seemingly mundane. Her work span from art toys, paintings, large sculptures to all sorts of artist collaborations around the world.”
The Free Expression scouts artists to interpret “what it means to be free in the cities in which they live,” for Mak, it’s the quirks and flaws that make the city extra special. “Like wildflowers, it is bright and constantly growing and changing. Rather than pursuing perfection, she embraces every part of her life in Shanghai and goes with the flow.”
The FLABJACKS x Nike Free RN “Free Expression” artist series just dropped at select Nike retailers and nike.com on April 12, in both men’s and women’s sizes.
