Yesterday Marcus Marritt sent me a new work to add to his profile. A portrait of Justin Fashanu, the first pro footballer in the UK to come out as gay, plus the first £1million black player, he created for the Moosey Art Patterns of Play exhibition. The story of Justin is an interesting and tragic one, so be sure to read about this frontrunner.
And also be sure if you are in the area to check out the Patterns of Play show at Moosey Art Gallery in Norwich. It runs until saturday, so last chance to see the portrait of Justin in real life and many more football art. Go to the Instagram page to see what you can expect!
