As any Geordie or Mackem worth their salt will tell you, football is tantamount to a religion on both Tyne and Wearside, with the regions football teams dividing family loyalties and polarising opinion like nothing else. However all differences and footballing hostilities are temporarily set aside with the emergence of a football itself and the advent of an impromptu kick about, whether man or boy. Pictorially seizing on this historical love affair with the beautiful game, acclaimed and much-collected contemporary figurative exponent, Alexander Millar returns to his warmly-embraced genre fold with the ushering in of this, his brand new Spring 2016 compositional release.
‘He’s Fitba Crazy’ sees two gadgies engaged in footballing battle on the streets, old adversaries renewing unfinished business, or possibly team members reimagining a famous match and subsequently rolling back the years. Whichever and whatever, there’s no pictorial escaping the generosity of belonging which the award-winning Millar has graphically infused in this giclee on paper limited edition piece; a piece which can now be yours if you look lively and register your purchasing intent sooner rather than later.
