World Cup 2014 Art – Ronaldo, Neymar and Messi
Portraits by Red Hongyi
KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 — World Cup fever is officially upon us, but one inventive artist prefers to use her footwork skills for a different purpose.
Footage of the creative process shows Yi dipping the ball in one of eight buckets of paint at her disposal, before manoeuvring it carefully around the canvas with her feet.
The instantly recognisable players are each depicted wearing their national team’s kit.
Yi is known for her atypical approach to painting and often eschews traditional methods for alternative tools such as basketballs.
She has collaborated with clients such as Hewlett Packard, Nespresso and Mercedes Benz.
