Last September we formed an art collective called Forces of Nice and launched an art show in collaboration with adidas Originals Hong Kong. The art show party was a real success and garnered us a ton of free press through 4 major local magazines, newspapers and countless blogs and tweets about the show. The show started with an entire entourage of local Hong Kong celebrities making guest appearances at our show and causing a frenzy of paparazzi photographers and groupies to form outside the adidas Originals flagship store in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.
The venue reached maximum capacity (300+) within the first hour. Guests were entertained by fresh beats dropped by Tom Pettapiece (AKA Straightleg) while Chairman Ting did a live digital graffiti performance (by Tangible Interaction). Later in the evening the guests were invited to do their own digital graffiti painting while sipping Vitaminwater juices and Wyndham Estate wines. The entire project took over 6 months of planning, coordination and production.
