With VALORANT Champions 2022 starting in a week’s time, Riot Games has unveiled special murals to boost home support for Paper Rex (Singapore), XERXIA Esports (Thailand), and BOOM Esports (Indonesia), as well as to introduce VALORANT Esports to the general public.
SINGAPORE, THAILAND, INDONESIA – To pay tribute to the skill and passion of APAC teams, Riot Games is collaborating with leading artists in Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia to immortalize their stories in a series of exclusive murals.
A Paper Rex mural was painted on the side of the *SCAPE building located on Orchard Road, the main shopping district and also commonly known as the heart of the city-state, to commemorate the Singaporean squad’s successful VCT campaign this year, most notably representing APAC in the grand finals of VALORANT Masters Copenhagen, and their qualification for Champions. The artwork, which features all the five players and the coach of Paper Rex, was commissioned by Singapore-based visual artist Sam Lo.
Riot Games is collaborating with Singaporean Sam Lo, Thai Piyasak Khiaosaard, and Indonesian Ongkogx. Fans will also have a chance to win copies of these artworks, signed by the professional teams themselves, by participating in a caption contest that will run from August 24 to September 9. More information about the murals and caption contests will be available on the VALORANT Esports social channels. Murals of BOOM Esports in Jakarta, Indonesia, will be revealed soon.
