HONG KONG///VINYL CULTURE///FIRST LOOK: MICHAEL LAU’S “CRAZY FORCE 1″ EXHIBITION
Hong Kong Sneaker and vinyl fetishists were on cloud nine last week when hoometown art hero MICHAEL LAU opened his "Crazy Force 1" art show at MICHAEL GALLERY. A collaborative project between the seminal toymaker's "Crazy Children" series and NIKE SPORTSWEAR's "1World" Air Force 1 program, the show featured a shoe box-like interior printed with Lau's "padded cell" print with artwork by Lau visible only through Swoosh-shaped cutouts in the wall. In the far corner of the room stood the artist's life-sized "Crazy Force" character solo in a corner. Of course no proper collab would be complete without to-die-for limited-edition product and Lau did not disappoint in offering fans a signature Nike Air Force 1 sneaker with an upper constructed of his quilted "padded cell" leather and a pocket-sized version of his "Crazy Force" character. Needless to say, supplies sold out in seconds and Lau's reputation as the king of the game remained undefeated. HAVE A LOOK:
