"Champions" Artwork By Richard Wilson
A return to artist Richard Wilson`s artwork now featuring players from Leicester City Football Clubs Premiership Winning team of 2015/16 season alongside manager Claudio Ranieri.
My film features the artist at work on the mural in Kate Street #Leicester.
Artist Richard Wilson works in spray paint to create artworks focusing primarily on portraits.
In 2016 inspired by the football teams Fairy tale success he traveled to Leicester in search of a place to immortalize Leicester city manager Claudio Ranieri, finding the perfect wall behind Electrical retailer Marks Electrical he set about attaining permission from the walls owner who being an avid LCFC fan happily gave permission for artist Richard to begin work.
Attracting the attention of media both locally and nationally it wasn't long till Richards work was being seen on newspaper front pages and in TV news bulletins,
BBC Radio Leicester`s drive time show hosted by Ben Jackson even inviting him to share his favorite music choices desert island disks style.
Richard was later invited to return and add portraits of the whole squad to his art work which (at the time of writing) he is now doing. To find out more about Richards work please visit his website at www.richardwilsonartwork.com
