Beautiful World Cup Art.

Wieden + Kennedy New York commisioned Capetown artists Am I Collective to create 32 murals, each one inspired by one of the 32 countries participating in the World Cup. Some of them are based on national themes, others inspired by film posters. There are my favourites:

Henry, Ribery and Anelka as the Three Muskateers. Classic.

As you know Emma, I don't really like football, but I'll be supporting France this Summer.

Emma said...

BOO.

Harry W said...

Boo? Why? Aren't Anelka and Malouda French? :\

Emma said...

haha, yeah they are, but I'm still bitter about how Henry handballed and knocked Ireland out (they're my second favourite country in footballing terms). Heh.

I thought your second football nation was Croatia, for the big-nosed Rat?

Emma said...

omg, don't be getting personal about my favourite players, unless you want me to mention a sore topic right now. Clue: it begins with F and ends in "abregas"

:P

Bitch! I hope Crouch doesn't start against the USA now, just for that.

Besty said...

And you're watching Eurovision? Loser.

Emma said...

You're so cool, Martin. Really.
