PUMA Africa includes a collaboration with New York artist Kehinde Wiley. As one of the worldâ€™s most sought-after artists, Wileyâ€™s work stands apart – depicting contemporary African American men in poses taken from the annals of art history, while incorporating a distinctive use of elaborate, graphic and colorful wallpaper-like backgrounds. This vibrant new line is inspired by his work, The World Stage: Africa Lagos-Dakar, and features West African textile prints. Kehinde has also been commissioned by PUMA to create four original portraits, featuring three of Africa’s most decorated football players.
