Charis Tsevis Artwork: Turkey 2010 Basketball World Championship
This is a project Charis Tsevis has been working on recently. He enjoys analyzing art movements,
collecting elements from these movements and developing new techniques as well as being attracted
to major sporting events likethe FIFA World Cup and the FIBA World Championship. He thinks it’s at
these events that people present the best part of themselves and their culture. This series of illustrations
is the outcome of all these interests combined. More specifically, it focuses on the current buzz going
on in Turkey – the hosts of the FIBA World Championship. Turkey is a place where East meets West, so
he felt it appropriate to combine Western elements taken from Cubism and Futurism with colours that
are commonly seen in Eastern structures – like turquise, pinks and variations of red. Although these
illustrations only cover athletes from Greece (his homeland) and the US (his favorite basketball team and
most probably the winner of this Championship), he hope to create a set of all 32 participating countries.
All illustrations have been created using a personally developed technique of scripts and hacks, and of
course loads of patience in Synthetik Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and the Apple Quick Time
A tribute to Balla, Sironi and Duchamp and the theories of Nino Di Salvatore, Bruno Munari and Rudolf
Illustrations that combine the Neo-Furistic Vector Technique with his passion for Mosaics and
collages. American athletes created from US landmarks and Greek players made from beautiful
scenes in his country.
All 6 illustrations are created to be used in huge sizes (posters, murals). In order to have an idea take
a look at some close-ups.
You can download the original size of these illustrations from his Flickr photostream by visiting his Basketball 2010 set. You will have to be a registered member to download the files.
For these illustrations he has used photos of basketball players shot by Matthew Jacques, Marty Ellis,
Kenn Inness, Richard Paul Kane,Hoops Photos and Klearchos Kapoutsis. All landmarks photos are
legally downloaded from Shutterstock, Stock Exchange (SXC). Unfortunately it’s impossible to name the
hundreds of photographers whose photos are presented in the collages.
All illustrations are licenced under the Creative Commons license scheme 2.0. You can download and
use these digital files for your NON commercial projects but you will have to credit Charis.
