Paris: Etienne Bardelli, Agnes Sylvester, Shaz
Foot Locker is working with several talents to promote the love for basketball and drive change from a local base. In France, we have partnered up with graphic artist Etienne Bardelli and Director of Paris Basket18 Agnes Sylvester, who both grew up in a basketball-rich community.
Paris vs London
Art inspired by the game plays a big part in helping off-court basketball culture thrive. Artists across the world are driven by the legends and stories of the NBA. From Kobe murals to illustrations mixing Japanese art and basketball, we celebrate people that find the inspiration to raise their game in the crossover between sport and creativity. We are proud to introduce you to two such people and their incredible work.
We have two hot artists going head to head in the paint, creating six custom NBA basketballs inspired by teams and their cities. Representing London we have Harky and for Paris, Shaz. Both are inspired by basketball culture and are raising their game by taking on a fresh new challenge for their creative expression, turning their canvas into a sphere. We’re looking forward to seeing some quite different ball skills from these guys.
