Football Casuals Mural
This mural was part of the "Art of the Terraces" exhibition at Walker Art Gallery. The exhibition is the idea of "80s Casuals" and it explores the impact that the football terraces have had on the wider culture, in particular the clothes, fashions and trends.
This mural represents the scene repeated all over Britain when the game finishes. Some of the key 'casual' brands are hinted at: Stone Island Adidas Lacoste Diadora Tessuti Lois Jeans FILA Europe Mephisto Shoes.
Artistically, this was a real challenge. There is a lot going on here and making all the figures fit into perspective from an unusual viewpoint (near the ground) needed much skill and patience!
