With Euro 2012 now but a memory, we once again find ourselves entrapped in the baron wasteland that is ‘no football’. Pickings are usually slim for topics around this time of year (unless of course you consider dealing with transfer rumours as anything other than a complete waste of time), however this week a very splendid piece of artwork has came to our attention which we’d like to share with you.
Amsterdam based artists The London Police recently paid a visit to our fair city, teaming up with local gallery Unit-44 for a special release – produce a piece incorporating all things Newcastle – a substantial part of which is obviously the football…
Recognise this cheeky chap? Of course you do. KK adorns one corner of the piece delightfully entitled ‘The Circle Of Truth Just After A Toby Carvery Hovering Above Newcastle‘ – along with the likes of Brian Johnson, Lord Armstrong and all the landmarks you’d expect to be associated with the city.
The original canvas (above) is currently hanging at Unit-44 gallery in Hoults Yard, Byker – that’s available for the sum £3,333, but for the more financially conservative (no political reference intended…) limited edition prints are available for £44. The gallery also holds further work by the artist, which can be found here.
To paraphrase KK himself, I ‘love it…’
