PUMA Commissions Contemporary Artist Kehinde Wiley for Portraits of African Football Players to Celebrate World Cup 2010 Campaign

Kehinde Wiley
To herald the start of a World Cup year and to celebrate PUMA's long-standing partnership with African football, PUMA has partnered with Kehinde Wiley, one of the world's most sought-after artists, and commissioned him to create four original works of art inspired by three of football's most decorated players. Wiley is best known for using contemporary African American men in poses taken from the annals of art history and for his distinctive use of elaborate, graphic and colorful wallpaper-like backgrounds.
