Shanghai Artist Uses Football For Portraits of World Cup Players

Shanghai-based artist Hong Yi, a.k.a. ‘Red,’ has combined her love for football and art in a very unique way. She recently painted a massive portrait of three superstars of the ongoing 2014 FIFA World Cup – Ronaldo, Neymar and Messi by dribbling a paint-covered football on a canvas.

Red didn’t use a single paintbrush to create her amazing portraits of the three popular football players. Instead, she kicked a paint-stained football around on the canvas, and actually managed to paint highly accurate pictures of her subjects.

She starts off with a ball rolled in yellow paint, to outline the heads of the players. Later, she adds red, blue and green to create the jerseys and then grey and black for the hair and facial features. “I think my painting skills are okay, but my soccer skills are questionable as you can see from the video,” she wrote on Facebook.
