The poster for the 2023 edition of Roland-Garros Maxime Verdier/FFT 2023

titled “land of stars», it has the distinction of being the first to have been made entirely in colored pencil. ” Through this work, the artist wanted to represent the influence of the tournament by highlighting the new Philippe Chatrier court bathed in a halo of light in a starry night of tennis balls. He also wanted to leave plenty of room for imagination to allow all tennis fans to make this poster their own. “, can we read in the press release. The young 31-year-old artist, Maxime Verdier, a graduate of the Ecole Supérieure d’Art Le Havre-Rouen and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts is, according to the press release: “the first artist to highlight the architectural lines of the Central court on a Roland-Garros poster. The other strong markers of the Parisian Grand Slam are also present: the clay court in the foreground and the balls in the heart of the stars which twinkle in the sky of the Porte d’Auteuil.»

For the artist, when asked about the meaning of his poster: “This young girl in the stadium who looks in the distance at the great courts of Roland-Garros, I think it’s a bit like the vision of these young people in the clubs who dream of touching this starry land of Roland-Garros and of being part of this constellation of great players. It also underlies all the hard work that goes into becoming a professional player. This poster shows that dreams can come true, but also all the steps necessary to get there.»
