Celebrating co-creation and
merging different worlds
The iconic player and creative
As a teenager in the 90’s, Edgar Davids fell in love with art, street soccer, and Feudal Japan. Before becoming a global football icon, he was always already considered a Street Soccer Legend, inventing unique tricks that are still used to this very day.
During this time, he was also a member of the Amsterdam graffiti scene, exploring his young creative mind and setting the scene for becoming an art collector. David’s longstanding affinity with art remained a never-ending source of inspiration throughout his 20+ year career, eventually leading him to become a photographer and the initiator and creative director of the #1 original street soccer brand: Monta.
The artist collective
The London Police, a group of artist that explored the depths of their friendship and translated this into their artwork, are a real phenomena in the world of street art with never-before-seen artworks and iconic details. ‘Working on this project has reminded us what an amazing journey we had as friends and artists.The collaboration with Edgar Davids and Monta Street is an amazing match; we are two parallel universes that have found each other through art’,- The London Police -
The original co-canvass ball as an exhibition showcased different parallel perceptions of artistic lifestyles that merged into one art piece. The collaboration also contributes to charity organization Parc Des Reves, an initiative that supports youngsters all over the globe through building playgrounds and social projects, providing the foundation and values for a better life.
