Artist Jason Polan draws Agassi-Sampras NikeCourt showdown in NYC
Polan’s drawing lives in the Nike Sportswear store on Mercer in downtown Manhattan. Per Polan’s instagram: “The drawing is based on the Agassi/Sampras commercial from 1995 where they pop out of a cab and start playing tennis in the middle of a busy street. Do you remember it!? Did you know that was Spike Jonze’s work!? (I didn’t!) I am really excited I could work on this project.”
Check it out: Polan also mentioned that there will be “other awesome stuff going on in there… if you want to stop by.” He said that postcards of his Nike drawing will also be available.
