  • Egyptian Graffiti Artist Wins Global Batman v Superman Design Challenge

    sober-main

    With the recent release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne’s long-awaited face-off has been the talk of the town. It’s been one of the most anticipated films of this still young year, even in Egypt, where the country is in the grips of comic book fever.

    To celebrate the release, Warner Bros. Pictures set a global challenge through Talenthouse, inviting artists from across the world to create visual art inspired by the film, with the winning entry to be used on the Batman v Superman‘s social media channels – and an Egyptian won.

    Said Egyptian is Mohamed Radwan, better known in street art circles as his alias, Sober, who took a slightly retro approach to his simple, yet effective, design, which sees the two powerhouses captured in a fitting night-and-day contrast.

    In addition to having his work used on social media, Sober will also be awarded a nifty $1,000 prize.

    This is not the first time Radwan has submitted work through Talenthouse (you can check out his profile here) which is a unique platform that gives independent artists access (and opportunity to respond to) creative briefs from brands and agencies from across the world.
