July 2018: Galleries Summertime exhibition, Vicenza

I was both honoured and excited to recently be invited to exhibit some of my Football Legends illustrations in Vicenza, Italy. Held at the Gallerie d'Italia the group show featured over 170 illustrations created by 64 artists from every corner of the world. My work was in esteemed company with well known illustrators such as Stanley Chow, Bartosz Kosowski, and event organiser Ale Giorgini also featuring their great work.

To mark the summer in the magnificent baroque courtyard of the building, a cycle of four evenings dedicated to the themes of the exhibition was arranged. Conversations, narrations and interviews were accompanied by projections and musical arrangements to tell the narrative of great champions of football, the magic of cinema, music and its protagonists and the most fascinating destinations on the planet. I was lucky enough to attend the opening evening which was dedicated to Football and a discussion about past Football greats and the nature of Football in general as a positive activity uniting all areas of society. All in all it was a great evening with the free craft beer topping things off perfectly!

The exhibition runs from June 13th to August 26th.
