Love is a recurring theme of a lot of street art. And often it’sin its simplest, plainest, most straightforward expressions that resonates with viewers.

Street Art … Homage to Classic Nike Air Jordan Sneakers, New York

It’s inspired by Nike’s classic Air Jordan high-top basketball sneaker and rendered across color bars in UnCasso’s typical illustration style. The artist has in recent months been bombing much of lower Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn with images of Steve Jobs and a young Michael Jackson.
