Did you watch the 2019 Women’s Football World Cup? Did you enjoy the skill, artistry and finesse of the women’s game? I know I did.
The BBC reported:
“The widespread coverage and high drama of the FIFA Women's World Cup has sparked football fever across the UK, with a record-breaking 6.9 million people watching England's most recent clash. There were still far more people watching men's World Cup matches, with 26.5 million viewers tuning in to see England knocked out last year. But there are some ways women's football is hitting the back of the net - while the male strand of the sometimes-beautiful game bounces disappointingly off the crossbar.”
The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup was the eighth edition of the FIFA Women's World Cup, the quadrennial international football championship contested by 24 women's national teams representing member associations of FIFA. It took place between 7 June and 7 July 2019, with 52 matches staged in nine cities in France, which was awarded the right to host the event in March 2015, the first time the country hosted the tournament. The tournament was the first Women's World Cup to use the video assistant referee (VAR) system.
The United States were defending champions after winning the 2015 competition in Canada and successfully defended their title with a 2–0 victory over the Netherlands in the final. In doing so, they secured their record fourth title and became the second nation, after Germany, to have successfully retained the title.
I was really impressed with the artwork created for this world cup. In the run-up to the tournament, commercial brands were looking for interesting visual ways to promote and support the teams involved. From murals to posters and Google Doodles, big companies are creating interesting imagery with messages about visibility. Twitter UK is behind a series of murals of female footballers which have been springing up in cities around the UK, including Liverpool, Manchester, London, Edinburgh, Dunfermline, Irvine and Aberdeen. The social networking site has commissioned a group of female artists to create the pieces.
These are the artists inspired by the Women's World Cup:
I discovered more impressive Women's World Cup 2019 art in a Guardian newspaper article by Lydia Walker titled, ‘Goal Lines: Sketches of the Women's World Cup – in pictures.’
Inspired by her 12 years playing football, Ruby Boddington (from website, ‘It’s Nice That’), commissioned 11 illustrators to capture the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
“This tournament was so anticipated, on a level that the Women’s World Cup hadn’t been before,” said Ruby.
So, in collaboration with Minute Books, and working alongside It’s Nice That’s art director Will Knight, she decided to mark it by choosing a ‘squad’ of artists worldwide to sketch the highlights of every game. Ruby emphasised that:
“The illustrators brought different styles, but they all had the same rules: use only white paper, crayons, pencils… use as much colour as possible.”
I just love the honest and simple naïve painting style, expressing excitement, thrills, mixed with emotional highs and lows. Each football wall art canvas is unique.
The brilliant international artists include, Hannah Buckman (UK), Sean O’Brian (UK), Jiye Kim (South Korea), Laylah Amarchih (UK), Gracey Zhang (US), Sean O’Brien (UK), Sebastian Curi (Argentina/Canada).
Germany v Nigeria by Haley Tippmann (US/Germany), Rebekah Lukosus (Latvia), Luis Mazon (Spain) and Sebastian Curi (Argentina/Canada).
