Haze’s classic signature style is a staple in the graffiti world. His work became widely recognized after creating art for early hip-hop groups such as Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, and EPMD, as well as designing logos for MTV and Tommy Boy Records. To celebrate Team USA and the thirtieth Olympiad, Haze created a large installation at the Nike Flagship store in New York. Filmed in the artist’s studio, the following video focuses on the artist’s inspiration for the show and the significance of symbols in his work.

From our brothers at Thrasher Magazine: Omar Salazar and videographer Benny Maglinao are two incredibly talented dudes. Levi's and Nike gave them the opportunity to take this video short into their own hands, and the result is something Hollywood production companies with million dollar budgets could only dream of making.

WIth Nike SB having a stage last night at MOCA's "Art In the Streets," the team got to skate a Geoff McFetridge x Lance Mountain skate "park" that sits at the entryway of the exhibition's main hall. Coinciding with McFetridge and Nike SB at MOCA, a new Nike Dunk High is being released in super limited quantities to be auctioned off to benefit the MOCA Foundation. More after the jump . . .

We like Paul Ulrich. He made one of the best pairs of Nike SB Dunks that there ever were made. That is not where the liking stops, as we like his fine art as well, and we hadn't heard from him in awhile but we see he is showing at Fecal Face Dot Gallery tonight, January 7, in San Francisco. Images and info after the jump . . .
