Citizens Bank Park
These two wall mounted panels were created for the Philadelphia Phillies for Citizens Bank Park. One is a portrait of the ballpark and the other is a portrait of star first baseman, Jim Thome.
My goals were to convey the spirit and the activity of the ballpark as well as create the effects of depth perspective and the volume of form as I bring my imagery to life.
I worked with representatives from the Philadelphia Phillies organization to best capture the type of imagery that they were looking for.
These mosaics were made using ceramic tile and various semi-precious stones and minerals. You can see more at: www.jonathanmandell.com
