We recently updated the interior of our Gastown Nike Partner store with an eye catching mural painted by local artist Taka Sudo. Born and raised in Tokyo, now residing in Vancouver B.C. Taka takes influence from many different environments to create his unique style of artwork. Paying tribute to the iconic AF1 silhouette, Taka used the classic circular pattern of the outsole as a backdrop to the mural.
Pulling inspiration from the historic Gastown area, Taka drew colour reference from the gas lit flame lamps used in the early 1900’s, that - although not gas lit currently - still line the streets of the neighbourhood.
Come see the mural in person, from 11am-8pm at our Livestock Special Engagement Nike Partner Store located at 239 Abbott Street, Gastown.
