Art of Football
Pepsi provided some images from the exhibition on 17 February 2014 in London where the beverage label unveiled the products of the latest collaboration with one photographer, six football players and six street artists: six canvases of black/white photos of famous football players (David Luiz - on the photo right, Leo Messi, Sergio Aguero, Jack Wilshere, Sergio Ramos, Robin van Persie) captured by Danny Clinch and framed by power motifs in the colors of the label's logo. (Making of video on this page, below.)

The energy-loaded motifs like flames, hearts and wild animals were created by the street artists Ricardo AKN (Brazil - photo above), Hattie Stewart (UK), Jaz (Argentina), Zosen (Spain - photo left), Merijn Hos (Netherlands) and Ever (Argentina). The art/photographs of Pepsi MAX’s global 2014 football ambassadors are part of the brand's football campaign which runs in social media under hashtag #FutbolNow. Pepsi announces to continue the 'The Art of Football' collection with music, film, digital and interactive experiences throughout this year.
