For the World Cup 2010 in South Africa, Plakker prepared for you an incredible initiative that unites the best of art and football. The first virtual “stickers” album! 67 “Stickers” made by 33 artists from 10 countries.
Who would have known that one can use newspapers to create art? The inventive artist Nick Georgiou from Queens, NY, is folding different newspapers to create sculptures and other installations. The sculptures are usually placed in public so you may have seen them around in New York City, but some of his pieces are also for indoor exhibition like the ones he has framed in to look like paintings.
Looking at these sculptures from a distance gives the illusion of pixelated illustrations. Artist Shawn Smith has managed to make them out of ink, plywood and acrylic paint so they would look computerized in a way. He is interested in the connection between technology and the real world.
To honor the biggest sport event of the year, ESPN TV collaborated with top-tier New York ad agency Wieden + Kennedy to give birth to 32 original soccer posters, one for each participating country at World Cup 2010 hosted in South Africa. Every poster symbolizes football and national tradition of the country.
