Russia 2018: Digital Collages by Charis Tsevis
Greek artist Charis Tsevis created these fantastic digital portraits of famous soccer players in anticipation of the upcoming World Cup in Russia next year.
“Based on the traditional Russian quilting patchworks and on ancient cyrillic calligraphy.
Russian patchwork or quilting is an art with deep roots in the Russian society. It’s a folk art as well as a real art form with great artists contributing to it. I decided to experiment with this art form creating a series of portraits of great soccer players. I wanted to combine traditional approaches with more contemporary ideas.
Another important element in this series of mosaics is the traditional cyrillic calligraphy which I really admire. I was extremely lucky to have collaborated with Vera Konstanta, who created these compositions for the project.”Art Illustration Posted on December 22, 2017
