Nike introduces Fabjacks collaboration
Nike continues the Free RN’s “Free Expression” artist series with Shanghai-based Hong Kong artist Ton Mak, better known as Fabjacks.
Following Korean artist Novo’s DIY-take on Free RN, Flabjacks opts for a more vibrant approach with a rainbow-like range of hues, alongside her trademark friendly creatures.
Ton began creating characters and narratives after graduating from University College London as an anthropology student. Tying together her love for art, ethnography and storytelling as Flabjacks, her work spans art toys, paintings, large sculptures and international artist collaborations.
The Free Expression series asks artists “what it means to be free in the cities in which they live”, and for Mak it is Shanghai’s flaws that make the city special. “Like wildflowers, it is bright and constantly growing and changing.”
The Flabjacks x Nike Free RN series is available at select Nike retailers and Nike.com in both men’s and women’s sizes.
