There is no shortage of Olympic-inspired art out there, especially during the summer of an Olympiad. We love the style of this series of Olympic posters by South African designer Ben Grib. The vintage, spare style works great for the subject matter, and the geometric composition/cubist influence of the athletes gives them some depth. Loosely reminiscent of work by Charis Tsevis (here and here).
