Rafael Nadal Portrait
The portrait of Rafael Nadal is a commissioned work for Nike Tennis. In June 2012, Rafael Nadal won the Roland Garros tournament in Paris for the seventh time. As an hommage to this new record, the Kennedys Amsterdam realized a livestreamed online event for fans to participate. During the match, fans were able to post their cheers and names. These were written onto paintballs which we used to draw this portait, thus the fans became part of the artwork. The piece consists of six color-layers.
