Nike has paired 11 UK athletes including Mo Farah and Perri Shakes-Drayton with East London artists including Lucas Dillon and Matthew Bromley for an exhibition this evening at retail development Boxpark.
Each athlete was asked ‘How will you make it count this year?’ Their answers – for example, lofty, inspirational and aspirational, are then translated into paint.
An additional piece by James Jarvis will be produced live at the entrance to the space on its opening night as a response to the whole concept.
A limited edition book of the works has been designed by Intercity Studio.
