With EURO 2016 right around the corner, here at Forza27 we’ve been featuring lots of great artwork in the build up to the tournament. So when we first saw these posters, we got more than a tad excited. ESPN commissioned French artist Florian Nicolle to create 24 posters for each team participating in France.

Exquisite portrait paintings with strong, defined lines mixed with spontaneous brush strokes and grunge-like background textures and patterns, the posters really express the passion of each nation. More than passion, more than eine maschine, more than a dream, they really are more than sublime. A wonderful collection.
Florian Nicolle is a freelance illustrator from Paris, France. See more on www.neo-innov.fr or on twitter @neoinnov.
