Blending football and art: Daniel Nyari

Football, no doubt, is the most beautiful sport in the world. One of the many aspects that makes it so beautiful is the many artists, designers, and illustrators who create exquisite pieces of art that give the sport we love a whole new view. Daniel Nyari is one of those artists, he uses his unique style of art to portray his love for football. Nyari’s modern style adds a fresh outlook on the world’s game.

In an interview with Bo McMillan, Nyari stated, “My work in graphic and web design allowed me to attribute my neurosis and compulsive behavior to a very structured and clean way to work.” He also refers to tilted or flattened perspective found in old 16 bit video games or the 18th century Paul Cezanne.

“I want to make art that looks like it was made by a computer which thinks it’s human.” -Daniel Nyari

love.fútbol changing lives with passion

We all know how football can turn our whole day around, but how about your whole life. That is what love.fútbol is striving to do. In this short Youtube video, you can see fields they have built in Guatemala and Brasil just for the community. As they say on their website, “A love.fútbol field is a safe and dependable outlet for youth to play and liberate their passion.”

You and I alike have all used a wad of newspapers or some old beaten up ball just to play. Not only their desire, but their innovations are the reasons we call it the beautiful game.

Drew Chafetz, the CEO of love.fútbol, is doing something extraordinary by using the power of soccer to give back to the undeserved communities and give them a positive and productive life through safe and dependable soccer fields.

“No matter the language, the religion, or economic situation, with soccer, we speak the same language. It’s the passion that connects us.” – Drew Chafetz, CEO love.fútbol

Joltter takes football videos up a notch

Screen Shot 2015-03-11 at 3.41.52 PM

Every so often someone comes along and completely changes the landscape that they operate in. They make something that’s so groundbreaking in its originality, scale, and vision that everyone else has to evolve or get caught in the tide.

Until now, football videos on YouTube were largely the same. Someone was either testing/unboxing boots, taking freekicks or freestyling. That’s it. Not saying there’s anything wrong with that, but originality was few and far between. Well, that has changed with Joltter’s latest offering: Football Short Film in 4K – Crazy Soccer Skills.

The 5 minute clip is absolutely brilliant from start to finish. The cinematography is superb, the editing is top drawer, and most importantly, the skills are fresh as hell. Joltter enslists the help of fellow freestylers Philip “PWG” Warren Gertsson, Kristoffer Liicht, Anders Fiil, Amin Benmoumou, Omid Ganjjou, Suell Osmani, and Jacob Corneliusen to create what is a benchmark in football videos.

Take a look:

As a certain rapper told us, Nothing Was The Same. Respect, Joltter!
