A SERIES BLENDING cartography and FOOTBALL PORTRAITURE
When moments like the World Cup come around and the world truly shares in an event, especially through social media, it’s just wild to me, to tap into that connectedness is a great set up and catalyst for a series. There is so much energy and excitement leading up to the World Cup.
I've always found maps and landmasses visually interesting from a young age. Especially how they were a physical medium, found in reference areas in grade school libraries pre-internet. So to pick up on that interest and then combine it with my portrait works was a great way to celebrate the unique countries, kits and cultures in the World Cup.
