The Art of Sport series has been created by co-founder of SOLV John Paul Stallard and creative director of Dowling Duncan San Francisco and New York, Rob Duncan.
The pair, both English, met in an Irish bar in San Francisco watching the 2005 Champions League final between Liverpool and AC Milan.
Stallard, an Arsenal fan, and Duncan, a Liverpool fan, have created a series of ‘living-room worthy prints that bring a modern design aesthetic to your favourite team, while subtly incorporating team history, colours, names and mythology.’
Duncan, says ‘When we were kids, it was okay to hang posters of our favourite team all over our walls. When we grew up, as much as we loved our team, our girlfriends – and later our wives – wouldn’t have a giant Man United poster hanging above the mantel, even if they were big fans.’
If you’ve grown too old for Match magazine but, like Design Week, still collect Panini stickers for international tournaments, this could be for you.
In the spirit of the series we’ve only captioned two of them. We’ve numbered the rest 1-6. See if you can guess the which Premiership clubs they are using our comments section.
The prints are available from artofsportstore.com.
