We proudly present... The STATIC + ZICO 2014 ABC Trust UK football.
Art and Sport collide this summer for ABC Trust Art of Futebol, with footballs signed by some of the biggest stars of Brazilian and British football transformed into unique works of art by some of the most exciting contemporary artists working today including Rob & Nick Carter, Patrick Hughes, Pure Evil, Pakpoom Silaphan and Cibelle.
The balls will be displayed in the World Cup Walkway at Selfridges on 23rd June until 9th July on the LG Floor. On 10th July the balls will be auctioned off in a private event at the Embassy of Brazil by celebrity auctioneer Jon Baddeley from Bonhams Auctioneers. Proceeds from the auction will go to Action for Brazil’s Children Trust (ABC Trust), which supports grassroots community projects to transform the lives of the most vulnerable kids in Brazil.
