Giannis Antetokounmpo and all the colors of Greece
Neofuturistic portrait of Giannis Antetokounmpo - one of my favorite Greek basketball players.
Giannis is born in my old neighborhood of downtown Athens. He is the child of Nigerian immigrants. The majority of us Greeks discovered him when he signed up with Milwaukee Bucks and he was in search of a passport. Until then, the Greek state considered him another illegal immigrant and for the fascists, another target. Now he is playing for our national team and he is considered a hero. But he was a hero even before this, right?
Go Giannis! Go Greece!
You represent the positive energy of our country.

This portrait is created for a fashion related project. Coming soon!

Best viewed large. Attention: Big file. (14301 x 19032 = 47.7" x 63.4" @ 300 ppi)
