The world’s most played sport is futbol (or football or soccer) and the world’s most watched event is the World Cup. With all eyes on the tournament in Russia 2018, Geoff Gouveia created a body of work to commemorate his roots in the game and the connection that the sport brings to billions across the world. Gouveia’s greater goal is to connect with the viewer through a new interpretation of the game in bright, whimsical paintings that showcase the inherent motion, color and rhythm of the sport.
