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:
