Puma unveiled the Kehinde Wiley x Puma Africa Unity Football Kit along with a small collection of awe-inspiring artwork yesterday night in SoHo, NY for the Legends Of Unity cause. Among the exhibits were a small collection of Puma footwear and shoelaces with intricate graphics designed by Kehinde Wiley, the LA-Born artist of African descent. The oil paintings combined detailed textiles that required meticulous discipline and photorealistic portraits of some of Africa’s prominent footballers. The artwork, apparel, live music, and attendance of prominent artists like Chuck Close all combined to create a momentous event that celebrated the worthy cause. Be sure to check out the nice collection of images after the jump.
