The Wake-Up Show

Before Sophal had to take the flight back to Boston, we headed out to Beat Rock where they were hosting an event for Pancho Abalos’ new series of ‘The 23 Nin-J’s’ paintings. I loved the paintings when I first saw them and even purchased one of his shirts a while back, but upon his explanation of how the pieces came about made me appreciate the art much more. This was one heck of a wake-up show.

This piece was kind of the genesis of the series, in that, all the ninjas are wearing Jordan’s first signature shoes. Pancho’s explanation behind it was that before Jordan had Jordans, Converse’s Weapons were the shoes helmed by professional basketball players and fans alike. That all changed when Michael Jordan swooped in (like a ninja) and took the whole sneaker game by storm.

    I Like The Route That This Store Is Taking. Clothing And Art. Not Too Many Stores Are Doing That At This Point, Even Though They Go Hand In Hand.

    I Din’t Know Your Boy From Boston Came Down?!
