July 17, 2010 - PRLog -- According to Tobias Mohr, 31, a football junkie but not a player himself: "Aesthetics on  the green field is a phenomenon". It is incredible how football and player images, especially in the details of their leg and feet movements, can give rise to extremely beautiful and harmonic compositions".  For this reason Mohr does not concentrate on Portraits: "I miss subjects. Players today are all too similar in their haircuts and look. Therefore for me they are not interesting".  For this reason Mohr focusses on the lower parts of the players bodies. "I try to interpret the body details and transfer them into ballet scenes according to my vision".

The collection is composed by 6 artworks each reproduced in limited editions of 50 reproductions. The works are exlcusively available on www.azzurriart.com, the on-line art boutique of the Italian National Football Team.

Since nearly 12 years I work with the fascination of soccer.

I picture this world with drawings and paintings as well as small objects, that should show my own view of the whole thing. My interesst is in the social and culturell aspects of football, the whole world including, fascination.
