[Event] Elliott Quince – Got, Got, Got, Need! Exhibition

Posted in Art, Visual by the.Zoo.keeper on May 11, 2010

Got, Got, Got, Need! - Wayne Rooney

‘Got, got, got, need!’ is a celebration of the colourful characters set to grace South Africa’s finest football stadia and also adorn the sticker collections of thousands of kids this summer.

Each canvas measuring approximately 16×12″ is a handpainted enlargement of an original thumbnail sketch. These 32 ultra limited edition one-offs have been painstakingly masked, sprayed and painted over the course of two months and are being exhibited at The Offside Gallery in Islington to raise money for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital. – Elliot Quince

Illustrator Elliot Quince has made me feel 10 again, & oh what a feeling; no responsibilities whatsoever, drop off @ 9am, pick up @ 3.15, oh the life. anyways, the Got, Got, Got, Need! sees him painting a portrait of a player from each of the 32 teams that will be @ this years FIFA World Cup – South Africa.

got to love how the “Got, Got, Got, Need!” title of the series is a play on the way you’d go through Match Attax cards @ school waiting for the right one to pop up; couple that with the inner feeling i could probably draw these myself & this is a winner.

apart from all that good stuff, i must say it’s good to see Ronaldo & Drogba from the shoulders up after their Homo-Erotic Vanity Fair cover.
