On August 15th, Nike will open it's first store in Mexico. To celebrate the opening, eight artists have been invited to have a live art installation in a 4.5 square meter area. And there is a really cool twist too - the day before the live painting event the eight artists will swap briefs between themselves.

Those taking on this challenge are; Jason Maloney, Joe Ledbetter, Jesse Reno, Bigfoot, Carlos Ramos, Tixinda, Yurievi (Popwhore,) and 123Klan.

Also supporting this activity, Nike invited each artist to design posters reflecting Mexico in their own style. Stats for Artistic Store Openings Trending: Older & Mild
