News: World Cup Captured on Canvas

The World Cup is gearing-up this year to be quite the spectacle, with North Korea hiring actors as fans and the constant drone of the vuvuzelas driving people mad, but at the Sandton Convention Centre, in Sandton, South Africa, a different kind of spectacle is happening. To help celebrate the World Cup, Adidas has set-up their official World Cup headquarters at the convention center and commissioned two local artists, Paul Junior Kasemwana and Espoir Kennedy, to paint some of the most pivotal moments of this year’s tournament as well as portraits of the top players from each squad.
Paintings are completed daily for fans to come and see and at the end of The Cup, will be auctioned off on Ebay to support the Nelson Mandela 46664 Foundation.
