Oiwa comments his work for the Official Art Print Edition 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ as follows : "I want to surface what is unknown about Brazilian popular culture to countries abroad and avoid common stereotypes such as toucans, bananas and Carnival. My role as a visual artist was clear from the beginning; to introduce the cultural richness of the country in a very simple way. Within my visual content will be referrals from North to South of the country, including cuisine, folklore, indigenous crafts and folk crafts. The ball that the kids in the painting play with is the bottom star of the Southern Cross, and many other symbols will be present in the artwork. The main characters were inspired by clay figures made in the Caruaru (Pernambuco State) region. The baked clay figurines, the vacant lot they play soccer in, the pots and pans, and old-fashioned kitchen are all connected because they are made of the same material, clay, and were once part of Brazilian soil”.
Oscar Oiwa (1965-) was born of Japanese descent in São Paulo, Brazil, and is now one of the most accomplished artists to record the impact of globalisation. A recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship in 2002 and now based in New York, Oiwa has held numerous solo exhibitions around the world, and more notably in museums in Japan such as the Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo.

His works show a visual interplay of cross-cultural influences from his Japanese heritage and traditions, contemporary manga as well as western impressionism and science fiction film. Oiwa’s works are striking in their portrayal of multiple viewpoints and objects which combine effortlessly into a vivid world of their own.
