Opening tonight at the Hay Hill gallery on Baker Street is Win, Lose, Draw. An exhibition of iconic sporting moments created by leading UK graphic artists.
Art and sport often go hand in hand. Be it Ian Botham striking the ball for four, Thierry Henry drawing out the goalkeeper or A P McCoy achieving his 4,000th winner, there is something intrinsic about sport that really captures the imagination. Handsome Frank’s Thomas Burden loved the concept so much he created two original pieces for the show. One to celebrate Ian ‘Beefy’ Botham’s heroics in the 1981 Ashes and the other in honour of Mo Farah’s unforgettable Olympic double in during London 2012
The private view runs this evening from 6.30 – 8.30 pm and includes a mix of digital and original works of art, each artwork having been signed by the featured sportsman to make it completely unique. All funds raised by the initiative are in aid of national charity, Willow.
