Nike Vault at the STAPLES Center recently launched The Kobe Prelude Experience. For eight weeks, they are showcasing Kobe inspired artwork by different artists, and every Saturday they will unveil a new piece. Each piece is tied to a key moment in Kobe’s career.
LA-based artist, Allison “Hueman” Torneros, unveiled the first piece in the eight part series the other night. Nike commissioned her to create a surreal piece inspired by his 81 point game. Torneros explains, “I wanted my artwork to portray the energy he had that night and his multi-faceted persona.” Kris Kuksi followed with the second piece (seen above), a sculpture which exalts Kobe’s famous streak of 50+ points in 4 straight games. Keep a look out as some other great artists will be unveiling art in the coming weeks as well.
