Maryland Institute College of Art student Meen Choi brings us this portfolio of player portraits built around the iconic images of their homelands. Neymar in a rain forest, complete with parrot. Mesut Ozil among Germany’s famous automobiles, his large eyes playing the role of headlights. A genteel Wayne Rooney, drinking tea in a garden while wearing his England kit. Robin Van Persie biking through tulips. Andres Iniesta running with the bulls, hardly bothered by their hulking bodies. Nationalism + soccer + art.
