Nike has just announced that US-based Nigerian artist will create Air Max inspired art at the upcoming Air Max Con 2016. This is huge for the artist who is getting major buzz.
The politically vocal visual artist Laolu Senbanjo draws inspiration from his Yoruba culture and world travels. At Air Max Con, he’ll be making art that incorporates his flare for Air Max, New York City, and sports.
In responding to the news, Laolu declared: "I'm making my dreams a reality. This is my ayanmo ( which means for 'destiny' in Yoruba). Create your destiny. Let me be your inspiration. Just do it!"
Aside from this huge landmark, Laolu is known for his body art and his artistic clothing pieces from his jacket to his sneakers, most especially. Just last year, he designed a custom made art infused jacket for younger brother of Oscar winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o, Peter Nyong’o for the premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
So far, based on his previous work, would you by his upcoming Air Max sneakers?
