Everton Creatives: Art Of Football
Art of Football produce hand crafted designs emulating the beauty of those split second moments that erupt from that one magical kick of a football
It was after watching Man City’s crazy title-winning match that the idea for these T shirts came to me.
The sudden transformation of anguish, nerves and misery into pure, uncontrollable elation was something of a spectacle. Now I’m not a City fan, nor is my club even involved in the Premiership, but even I was bouncing off the walls when Aguero finally broke through QPR’s defences.
As an artist and designer, I wanted to be able to immortalise that moment in a T shirt so that fans could wear it with pride (as they would usually do with a replica shirt), and be forever reminded of it.
The majority of football T-shirts I see these days are just generic, crudely screen printed images of Luis Suarez’s big ugly grin, or something along those lines.
They are churned out in their thousands into a market that already has thousands like it.
At Art of Football we have a very different philosophy.
Each design has been thoughtfully made primarily as a piece of art, this way we can do our best to do justice to those moments that fans cherish so highly.
We look to capture all the raw emotion and energy that you felt during those seconds of celebration and, most importantly, we look to do it in style.
