This is a painting of a series I have recently created, dealing with the ‘beautiful game’ of Football, where players are actually team-colour-feathered birds.
I wanted to concentrate on the amusing aspects of this game, whose essence is in a ball and a group of friends having fun with it.
This one in particular represents one of those typical pictures where the whole team poses in front of a photographer. It’s a moment in time, a memory conveying the sense of belonging to a group that shared some beautiful experiences together.
Sport is or should be important in anyone’s life. For the little ones it’s just playtime, the joy to move and being with friends; the ball is just an excuse to have fun together. When we grow, for many people, the team and all that it means may become the unifying symbol of their existences.
