2010 in eyes of artists

THE exuberant spirit of the impending Fifa World Cup, which kicks off on June 11, has taken a firm hold of us and one can almost smell the enthusiasm in Johannesburg's thick air.

THE exuberant spirit of the impending Fifa World Cup, which kicks off on June 11, has taken a firm hold of us and one can almost smell the enthusiasm in Johannesburg's thick air.

Obviously we are all being bombarded with a lot of information and events surrounding the Cup.

Not a bad thing necessarily but most of the stuff has been one-dimensional, somehow leading one to become jaded before the event has even begun.

So it is interesting when one receives information concerning the World Cup from a totally different perspective - a refreshing art perspective.

Now available for sale to art enthusiasts are the Fifa 2010 official art posters at David Krut Publishing outlets.

This is really refreshing, especially for art lovers.

The posters are a priceless collectible to commemorate the Fifa 2010 World Cup South Africa and are an ideal starting point for a private or corporate art collection.

Seventeen international artists with a special relation to the African continent, celebrities as well as emerging talents, have made football their subject and created beautiful and extraordinary works.

Though very different in style, each of the works express the individual artist's support for the games in Africa and the excitement of taking part.

These posters, which include internationally renowned South African artists William Kentridge and Marlene Dumas, are available exclusively at David Krut Publishing.
