One of the highlights of the 2019 calendar year, the age-old rivalry (England v Australia), that is the Ashes series. The creative route celebrates the elegance, spirit, rivalry and historic moments of the event, from Sky Sports’ first broadcast in 2005. An artist brings all these scenes to life in the form of a bold, colourful mural combining iconic players and moments with names and statistic scripture. The same creative was used for both the men’s test series and women’s multi-format version.

Artist Florian Nicolle, was commissioned to depict each of the carefully selected cricketing moments. His distinctive style – the perfect mix of energy and elegance – was the perfect match for both subject and sport. Each individual painting was supplied as layers, animated and intertwined with live action shots of our artist actress. Each sequence has its own music score composed specially to reflect the symbolic walk-out tracks played at their respected matches.
