Daniel Arsham is a famous American artist and sculptor who has completed works for Calvin Klein and Louis Vuitton Created on commission. Now it’s time to work for a poker brand: WPT. The artist created unique trophies that will be awarded to the winners of each series in 2023.
“This may be the most creative partnership in WPT history. Daniel is an incredible artist whose work perfectly aligns with modern lifestyles. We are honored to feature these art to honor all 2023 WPT champions,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska.
The first trophy has been awarded to last year’s WPT World Champion Eliot Hudon. The next owner of the Seminole and Joe Crow Series will be determined by the end of May. Fun fact: Player Bing Weng was the chip leader at both final tables.
Arsham looks at our culture through a telescope spanning millions of years, says co-artist Mark Quinn. It gives us a weird idea of how others might view it a century from now. Well, this is a huge added incentive for players to win trophies in the WPT series.
