Inspirations #1: Football
The goal of Art Loves Sport is to show sportart as diverse as possible. Different types of art, different types of sports and different artists. There are a lot of initiatives that inspire Art Loves Sport daily and continue to push me to add new content, artist or blogposts about sportart. On the territory of football there are a lot of initiatives that focus solely on the art of this beautiful game. Here I want to share the ones that inspire me with you!
Futbol Artist Network (FAN)
"FAN is the leading Football-only Art boutique providing services in the fields of Graphic Design, Illustration, Typography, Fashion, Fine Art, and Photography. FAN also sells football-related artwork, including licensed art by the world’s top teams and leagues, as well as Limited Edition Signed Prints from the greatest players of the beautiful game in collaboration with some of the world’s leading artists."
