I felt the need to challenge myself with an illustrated portrait series, so I decided I would create a series of posters of my favorite footballers to wear 1 – 11. This project gained spirit with my work with the futbol artist network. I have loved the beautiful game for as long as I can remember, and I wanted to commemorate the genius’ of the game. Each poster uses the specific color palette of either the crest or kit of the team to dictate the composition. Mixed in each piece is the respected stadiums of each player, which are lightly ghosted within the work.
* I don’t know about the rest of the OG Wingers out there, but I’m not an art dude. I want to be an art dude. I’m just not an art dude. Maybe there is something wrong with my brain that I can’t understand what makes a blue canvas with a blue line in it worth $44 million dollars. High art, most of the time, makes absolutely no sense to me. I kinnnnnd of understand why a Basquiat or a Monét or a Picasso would be expensive, or at least I can justify it, but 75% when I am looking at art at a gallery, I’m just there for the wine and the girls.
But this kind of stuff, I’m down with. Best, Pelé, Cruyff, Gerrard, Cristiano, Booby Moore, Beckenbauer, Carlos Alberto, Maldini, Cafu, and Zoff on your choice of stretched canvas or print, ranging in size from 8 x 12 to 24 x 36, starting out at $20 bucks which is a pretty reasonable price…. yeah, I can get with this.
Check out a few of the high res joints after the jump and then go to the website to see them all. These are dope, and you are going to want one. or two.. or three… These are perfect for the footy fans dorm room, frat house, apt., man cave or penthouse. You buy three or four of them and line them up on your wall, instant conversation starters…. I might have to do that myself!
