Early Doors

Messi, Aguero, RVP and others as you’ve never seen them before

Lionel Messi, Sergio Agüero, Robin van PersieJack Wilshere, David Luiz and Sergio Ramos are all global superstars but you've never seen them quite like this.

Pepsi MAX arranged for US photographer Danny Clinch to do a portrait of each player and then got a street artist from each player's country to reinterpret the images.

The resulting artwork led to six spectacular 10-foot by 10-foot canvases, scaled down versions of which see below along with details about the artists.
