Back in 2010 the London based studio HelloVon collaborated with Nike Stadium to create a huge 17 window installation at Selfridges on Oxford Street in London. Designed to celebrate the World Cup, the installation featured 17 portraits of the world’s best footballers with each image measuring a whopping 5m x 3m.
HelloVon is the studio name of Von, a London based illustrator and artist. Von’s mixture of traditional and digital mark-making techniques creates images which combine old fashioned craftsmanship with a skill for creating very clever and contemporary images. His installation at Selfridges was a fantastic display of his talent, and I think his style of image-making is the perfect way to honor these sporting greats.
