ART – A little spotlight for the work of artist Paine Proffitt, famous for his brilliant “oldskool” matchday posters which give us that fair English Football feeling. A short quote of Paine:
“In my paintings I’ve wanted to touch on our feeling of who we are, where we come from, and what we care about. Some of my work is about the sense of identity, home, history, love, culture, and the joys and hardships of life. A large section of my work focuses on football … for me and many, football is a passion and love. The game is central to who we are, where we come from, our past, our family and religion, and there’s an emotional bond between ourselves, our club, our supporters and our town. I aim to capture what the game means to us, whether a memory, a moment, or a connection.”
FootballCulture is very proud to do a collabo with Paine. We released a “FootballCulture”-shirt based on an original Aberdeen-painting. For more info about the artist check his site and Facebook page!
