Basketballs have more so been agent of victory as opposed to agent of art, but basketball lifestyle label K1X changes the game by inviting four artists to create limited edition artist series basketballs. The collection named 4 Elements 4 Icons 4 Basketballs ("4E" for short) dresses basketballs in graphic arts rendered by artists based on four elements of nature-- Bill McMullen for fire, Marok for Water, Frank 151 for Air and Mode 2 for Water. The third basketball to be unveiled in this series is the fire version created by San Diego-raised, New York-based artist, Bill McMullen. Bill McMullen is known for his design work with musicians such as Beastie Boys, Method Man, N.E.R.D and DMX. For his basketball, McMullen took full advantage of the spherical shape and his favorite color, orange, to reinterpret the element of fire in graphical terms. The resulting work is a basketball that looks like it is engulfed in flames. Check out the interview video created by K1X with Bill McMullen, learn a little about the man and how he got to where he is today, and take a look at the basketball that is now available at select retailers worldwide for a limited run of 444. Flame on!
