Riot Fashion: Life Imitating Art?

The Boston Globe has a stunning photo essay on the recent Greek Riots sparked by the killing by police of a 15-year-old boy. One image in the series reminded me of another by street artist Eddie earlier this year on the occasion of the Beijing Olympic disgrace. I wonder if Nike would consider this a good example of why their branding is so successful and powerful.
