Edo Ball: The Art of Basketball

In stock (1000 items available)
Andrew Archer is a New Zealander resident in Melbourne, and his Edo Ball is a captivating work of cultural blending. His paintings seamlessly fuse contemporary basketball imagery with Edo-period Japanese art and culture. Each image riffs on a classic Japanese painting or subject, and often NBA personalities are front and centre, dramatically reimagined yet recognisable, surrounded by the trappings of Japan’s 19th-century “floating world”.
