Highly Celebrated

Daniel Arsham is a celebrated artist whose work spans various mediums, including drawing, film, architecture, and sculptures. His art is represented by galleries worldwide, including New York, Paris, Hong Kong, South Korea, Brazil, and the Netherlands. This partnership marks a creative convergence of the worlds of poker and contemporary art.

As part of the collaboration, Arsham will design unique trophies for the WPT champions of 2023. Adam Pliska, WPT CEO, expressed his excitement about the partnership, saying: "In the history of WPT, this may well be the most creative partnership we have ever taken on.
