For the first time in NFL history, a Monday night football was played outside the US and the country elected to host this game was Mexico. This country hasn’t hosted an NFL game for more than 10 years, so it was more than necessary to throw the house out the window. Monday, November 21, 2016, El Estadio Azteca hosted Raiders vs. Texans. These two possible super bowl contenders came with a record of (7-3) Raiders and (6-3)Texans to the third largest stadium in the world. Mexico celebrated this Monday night football in different ways and art was one of them.

Various artists from all around Mexico were invited to bring their art talent upon the NFL helmets. Although details on the artists haven’t been revealed, they did an excellent job on bringing a concept on each of the 32 teams helmets. These talented people practically re-imagined each helmet and created helmets with folk patterns, doodles, graffiti, silhouettes and a bunch of different styles. Note, these helmets weren’t just your average size helmet; these were gigantic sculptures traditionally hand painted. One aspect all 32 helmets had in common was the cultural feeling they all transmit.

The artwork was highly influenced by Mexican aesthetic but in different styles. Below are a few of the beautifully designed helmets; to see the complete series make sure to visit the NFL fan page. These artists surely scored a touchdown with these helmets! I hope the NFL keeps bringing this awesome sport to different parts of the world.
