New Soccer Magazine Eight By Eight Artfully Showcases the World Cup

Basically anyone from any country other than the United States will tell you soccer isn’t a game, it’s a religion. A really, really beautifully-played religion. A new magazine, Eight by Eight, has sought to create a magazine that does justice to the world sport.

Torn Up Magazines Become Classic Art

Using the torn pages of old magazines, Brooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz recreates classic paintings in a pointillist style. From afar it would be hard to tell that these pieces are not actually by their original artists- Van Gogh, Cézanne, Edouard Manet, Mary Cassatt, and Caravaggio- but as you look closely you can see the faces and objects from the pages of the magazines. Originally from Sao Paolo Brazil, Muniz keeps art interesting using unexpected tools like puzzle pieces, thread, jam, chocolate, ketchup, dust, toys, pigments, and sugar to create unique pieces. I would imagine seeing one of these up close in person would be even more magnificent. Muniz has had his work on exhibition all over the world, even showing at the MET and Whitney Museum in NYC.

Huge Magazine Sculptures Swallow Objects Whole

Like gigantic lava flows made of paper, David Mach’s installations pour out into their spaces, filling them with a colorful fluidity constructed with the precision of a master. The pieces were part of his work beginning in the mid-1980s, created using tons of discarded magazines and large found objects – from full-sized sofas, to airplanes and cars.

Each Illustration Tells A Story

These illustrations have a really cool, quirky vibe to them. Every image has something about it that really draws you in, wondering what story lies behind its vibrant palate. Each was created by the deft hand of Michael Byers, an illustrator from Ontario, Canada. He has done work for a number of high level periodicals, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, LA Times, BusinessWeek, Atlantic Monthly and Harvard Business Review, to name just a few.
