Soccer is a religion in Latin America, and Pelé is its god.

The Olympics are coming and Brazil will once again be the international spotlight for Soccer in the world. In “Lovers of Pele”, Bueno create pieces with pop icons such as the Mona Lisa, Marilyn Monroe and David Bowie being kissed by Pelé.
