Cristiano Ronaldo Mosaic Tribute by Charis Tsevis

Chris created this intricate series of mosaic illustrations based on the great tradition of Azulejo. His subject in this series is one of his favourite soccer players, Cristiano Ronaldo. This is what he had to say about this series:

“As a person who is studying mosaics for several decades I have spent a lot of time with Azulejo and for long time I wanted to experiment with some artworks that would mix digital art with this great tradition. I have chosen Cristiano Ronaldo as the main figure for these studies. Cristiano is probably the biggest popular hero of contemporary Portugal and one of my favorite athletes. This guys is not just an incredible soccer player. He’s is much more than this. He’s an artist, a show man, a working class hero, a role model, a hard working entrepreneur… Hope you find this work interesting.”
