UPCOMING EVENTS

Neofuturistic Vectors by Charis Tsevis

Amazing work. Vibrant and dynamic series of illus­tra­tions inspired by the Turkey 2010 Basketball World Championship by Charis Tsevis. A tribute to Balla, Sironi and Duchamp and the theories of Nino Di Salvatore, Bruno Munari and Rudolf Arnheim.


This is a project I’ve been working on recently. I enjoy analyzing art movements, collecting elements from these movements and developing new techniques as well as being attracted to major sporting events like the FIFA World Cup and the FIBA World Championship. I think it’s at these events that people present the best part of themselves and their culture. This series of illustrations is the outcome of all these interests combined. More specifically, it focuses on the current buzz going on in Turkey – the hosts of the  FIBA World Championship. Turkey is a place where East meets West, so I felt it appropriate to combine Western elements taken from Cubism and Futurism with colours that are commonly seen in Eastern structures –  like turquise, pinks and variations of red.
Although these illustrations only cover athletes from Greece (my homeland) and the US (my favorite basketball team and most probably the winner of this Championship), I hope to create a set of all 32 participating countries….that might take forever, but lets see.
Hope you enjoy them!
