MILWAUKEE — An artist from Cyprus is grabbing the attention of Milwaukee Bucks fans everywhere with his unique map mosaics that celebrate the athletic prowess of Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Charis Tsevis created his first piece featuring #34 in 2018. His “Made in Athens” portrait is based on the actual map of Greek capital — where Giannis was born and raised. Tsevis said he used a variety of photos from the streets of Athens in the mosaic.
More recently, Tsevis released his latest work entitled. “Bucks: The deers of Milwaukee.” This time, the artist based his mosaic on the actual map of Milwaukee. He used thousands of photos from southeast Wisconsin to portray Giannis — who now calls this city home.
Tsevis has made similar mosaic portraits for several more of the Milwaukee Bucks — and he hopes to complete mosaics for the entire team. See those works in the gallery below.
