What up gangsters? That’s what 123Klan, the French creative studio made up of über talented designers and graff artists Mrs Klor and Scien, are asking you in this great video. Did we mention they get interviewed by a puppet that looks like he just ran out of those great Nike commercials?

“30 Customs By 30 Artists: An Auction to benefit the Children of Cambodia is the first step in trying to help the children that have impacted my life,” writes Kidrobot’s Baroness Nichole. “After traveling to Cambodia last year I fell in love with the people of that country. Everyday I think about the amazing children I met and how I could help them.” So she reached out to 30 artist friends (like Alex Pardee, Tara McPherson, Tim Biskup, Andrew Bell, and others) and asked them to create a custom toy specifically for an auction.

After all our commentary about how sick the Nike Art Fest that went down last week in Mexico City turned out, and then checking out photos of participating artists Jason Maloney, Bigfoot, and 123Klan bombing walls outside the city, you may be wondering what the actual new Nike Sportswear store looks like. We’re glad you wondered, because it's quite a piece of art in itself and Bigfoot just so happened to snap some great shots of the store’s interior the day before opening. Yeah, it’s dope. Almost as dope as all the new kicks that lined the spot’s racks the next day for the grand opening of the Nike Sportswear headquarters, 18 Teotihuacan, Colonia Condesa. More here…

Want a little taste of what really went down when the artists commissioned (Jason Maloney, Joe Ledbetter, Jesse Reno, Bigfoot, Carlos Ramos, Tixinda, Popwhore, and 123Klan) to paint the first Nike Sportswear store to hit Mexico City roamed the area unsupervised? A lot of graffiti and mural painting is what you’ll get. And we couldn’t be happier; collaborative artwork is what bringing different artists together is all about. Peep some more photos of Bigfoot (above) 123 Klan, and Jason Maloney (below) bombing a wall about an hour outside Mexico City right here.

Nike opened the first Nike Sportswear store to hit the Americas in Mexico City on August 15th. Named Nike Sportswear 1902 to commemorate the founding of the Colonia Condesa, where it is situated in the heart of the largest city in the world, Mexico’s flagship store features the new lines of Nike Sportswear Apparel and Footwear. To celebrate the opening, eight international artists were invited to each create a 4.5 square meter live art installation in the New Nike Sportswear store, 18 Teotihuacan, Colonia Condesa. Participating artists included: Jason Maloney (shown signing autographs,) Joe Ledbetter, Jesse Reno, Bigfoot, Carlos Ramos, Tixinda, Yurievi (Popwhore,) and 123Klan. The day before the live painting event went down, each of the artists swapped briefs between themselves and had only the evening to think over their design for the opening ceremony! In a less spontaneous manner, Nike also invited each artist to design posters reflecting Mexico in their own unique style, in any medium they chose. Take a peek at some more Art Fest event photos right over here.
