As part of its #GalleryOfChampions initiative, SuperSport commissioned local up-and-coming artists to produce a series of illustrations of Springbok rugby players in the Japanese Anime and Manga art styles. The works of art, printed using Epson’s SureColor SC-P20000 large format printer, were auctioned to raise funds for Let’s Play, a charity initiative aimed at the development of rugby in South Africa.
Epson’s SureColor SC-P20000 provided fast, easy and superior printing that saw the digital artwork of five illustrators brought to life on A1 canvases. The signed original artworks were auctioned on SuperSport’s social media pages, with R45,000 raised for Let’s Play.
‘Epson is proud to be part of an initiative like #GalleryOfChampions, promoting the work of emerging young artists while encouraging more South Africans to get behind our boys in green and gold and drum up excitement for the sport among the youth,’ said Vernon Mellors, business account manager at Epson South Africa. ‘Work of such an incredible calibre deserved to be celebrated in beautiful, bold and large print, and Epson is glad to have been of assistance.’
