Great artwork created by Braam Vanhaeren. He selected a few key players and then transformed them into works of art.
FIFA World Cup 2010 – South Africa
With the world cup coming up, I thought it would be the perfect moment to experiment again. I’ve selected few amazing players to work with. But as you can see they have no faces, because I believe in a team and not a Star Player in a World Cup. I hope it’s going to be a fantastic World Cup with a lot of goals and awesome safes by the goalkeepers. And I wish every country best of luck! May the best team win and don’t forget Fair play!
Every now and then I push myself to create some works in a style or with a method I’ve never done before. And this time I experimented to draw athletes and paint. I’ve never followed lessons before so I had to figure out how to work with paint and small brushes. But quickly I found it very amusing and relaxing. I worked with pencils and water paint on A3 rough paper. After the painting/drawing was done I played around with it in Photoshop.
After 30-35 Hours work, this is the result.
If anyone is interested, I’m selling the 10 original paintings for only 100 Euros. Only one person can buy them all. So be quick before it’s gone. You can buy this series here: Into1 Shop
