I’m delighted to reveal my latest artwork, my largest commission to date – for an avid Manchester United fan. Sharing the story of this artwork is poignant as it is the two year anniversary of blowing my knee, the event which led me to follow my love of art.
The 60 x 90 cm original artwork of Manchester’s world famous football club, created to meet with a detailed customer brief, charts the club’s history in a timeline, from Newton Heath to present day, including the Munich Disaster, and the treble win in 1999.
Viewed from the Stretford End the artwork depicts the energy of a 70,000 strong crowd on a vibrant match day at Old Trafford football ground. The composition spans the clubs history and brings together key players, managers and moments of the clubs highlights. Landmarks of the the city of Manchester are in the distance.
The artwork represents Eric Cantona, Sir Matt Busby, Sir Alex Ferguson, The Magnificent Sevens – Best, Robson, Beckham, Ronaldo and the VIP fan.
The ad boards display inspiring words and the goals are formed of written quotes chosen by the customer.
Commissioned by the customer as a surprise for her partner, the artwork was completed in December 2016.
This challenging commissioned football themed painting allowed me to communicate energy and positivity, which are key intentions of my ‘Inspire by Kim’ work.
The artwork came about after the customer saw my Barnsley Boy commissioned artwork, completed in late 2015.
It is now two years since I blew my knee skiing, the event which was the impetus to the decision to become a full time artist. Having completed this artwork helps to heal the impact of the injury and rehabilition which I have undertaken ever since.
This artwork is for an individual and is not connected to or endorsed by the football club.
