What is this shit? Who would ever want to own one of these big glittery bling-bling Shimansky soccer balls? Kotch! Can you imagine one of those atrocities, masquerading as art, perched as the centerpiece of some bourgeois unit’s collection in their newly furnished Rivonia loft? What a con. To quote Mahala’s Sean O’Toole “Art is not Soccer“.
Yes, they may be for charity, with “all funds raised going towards the Canal Walk Foundation, who will support CCDI (Cape Craft and Design Institute) in the development of art in the Western Cape”. But what disturbs us is their inability to tell the difference between art, craft and footballs.
