Graphic Arts Exhibition is a winner
November 25, 2015
The walls of the Hay Hill Gallery in London were awash with colour on the evening of Monday 23rd November for the launch of Willow’s graphic arts exhibition, Win, Lose, Draw.
Win, Lose, Draw is an exhibition of iconic sporting moments re-created by leading UK graphic artists. The collection features a mix of digital and original works of art; each piece has been signed by the featured sportsman and is completely unique. Original artworks and limited edition prints are being sold at the exhibition and online in aid of Willow.
The collection of 16 works of art features graphic interpretations of iconic sporting moments that are now firmly routed in British culture. Today’s and yesterday’s generations still talk with ease about the famous sporting moments of: Freddie Flintoff, Mo Farah, Sir Alex Ferguson, Martin Johnson, Ian Botham, Sir Bradley Wiggins, Sir Steve Redgrave, Thierry Henry, AP McCoy, Gareth Edwards, Sir Geoff Hurst, Tony Adams, Bob Wilson, Frank McLintock, Charlie George, Ossie Ardiles, Ricky Villa, Michael Owen and David Seaman.
The moments depicted include Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United winning the 1999 Champions League, Sir Steve Redgrave securing his 5th Olympic Gold at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, Mo Farah’s historic second gold at the 2012 London Olympics and Freddie Flintoff consoling Brett Lee after the Edgbaston test during the iconic 2005 Ashes series.
Each moment has been depicted in a unique style by talented graphic artists Daren Newman, Charles Williams, Will Scobie, Ben Tallon, Dan Leydon, Emily Forgot, Von, Kingsley Nebechi and Thomas Burden, Willow was delighted to welcome most of the artists to the private viewing where we could thank them for creating this stunning, unique collection to help raise funds for Willow.
There are still some originals/artists proofs (£2,500) and limited edition prints (£200) available to buy online, the eye-catching pieces will look stunning in any office or home and are a perfect present for any sporting fan this Christmas.
