Serena Williams is one of the greatest athletes of all time. Victory after victory has seen her make history, causing her to inspire millions – designers included. New York based agency Vault49 (opens in new tab) have created 21 incredible illustrated tributes to the iconic woman, featuring them on an original mural in Brooklyn.
"Gatorade has sponsored Serena from the beginning of her career and to celebrate her 21 major victories, we created 21 unique pieces of art," they explain. "Each one celebrates a specific major victory. Every piece has it's own individual style, and conceptualises each specific tournament moment. The mural was hand painted on the corner of Grand & Kent in Williamsburg, Brooklyn."
From the surreal to the typographic, you can take a look at the story behind each piece over on the Gatorade (opens in new tab) website. For now, we've picked eight of our favourites and you can see them below.
