The Futbol Artist Network has brought together 25 of the best football artists from around the world for an amazing art exhibition displaying the beautiful game. The exhibition will take place at the 5th Annual Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival June 18-21, at the Tribeca Cinemas in New York City.
Artists from 13 different countries will be represented so expect to see a wide variety of unique and spectacular soccer art. Painters include favourites such as Betirri, Liam Dickinson, Ben Mosely, and Sebastian Domenech, with well-known illustrators Steve Welsh, Daniel Nyari, Ty Palmer, and Zoran Lucic.
Included in the exhibition will be photography from Belgium based artist Jessica Hilltout, displaying images from her world famous Amen Grassroots Football Project, as well as photographer Ciao Vilela of Brazil, known for his book Futebol-Arte, which brings images of spontaneous soccer matches captured in all 27 Brazilian states.
Also included will be US Soccer National Team star and Stoke City player Brek Shea. Along with being a world-class soccer player, Brek is also an artist and will be displaying a never before seen painting at the exhibition.
“We are starting a movement to replace the art hung in homes and offices of futbol fans around the world,” said Futbol Artist Network founder Trevor Slavick. “This is a first of its kind and our Group Show brings together the best futbol artists from 13 different countries to kick this off.”
