According to Mark van Niekerk, founding member of Am I Collective, the murals pay homage to Ghanaian movie posters from the 1980s. Am I Collective also designed the poster for the World Cup kick-off concert on June 10th. Musical acts include the Black Eyed Peas, Shakira, Alicia Keys, John Legend, the Parlotones, and more.
Keeping reading "Fair Play" over the next few weeks as Vanity Fair writers continue to use the Am I Collective murals for team write-ups.
