The shoe is tagged twice, once with Stash’s signature and the other, with a unique iteration of “Nike.”

NYC-Inspired Style

NYC graffiti extraordinaire and world-renowned artist, Stash brings his roots to every work of art. Cuadro Fine Art Gallery of Dubai, UAE, where some of Stash’s work is on display, captures his contribution to the NYC’s art and culture:

Stash is now firmly established as an innovator and influencer in the world of urban design, and his fascination with the urban environment is also evident in his perfectly executed photographic work, which features a combination of city motifs alongside the latest lighting and printing techniques.

Harbor Blue Makes a Splash

Harbor Blue breathes new life into the Air Zoom Spiridon. The watery hues of blue are derived from Stash’s “signature blue color palette” (Nike.com).

Blue and white, with a touch of framing gray, take form throughout the Air Zoom Spiridon. The “pop” of the multi-dimensional blues recreate the same eye-catching effect as seen in Stash’s street art.
