The Greatest Beard In Football – Olof Mellberg

150.00

Some might take issue with the title of the painting and point to late period George Best, Trevor Hockey, Danny McGrain, Frank Lampard (original recipe) and Socrates. Or even that bloody weird mess David Beckham wore a few years back. However, Mellberg's effort perfectly sums up the ever so slightly ironic nature of the modern football chin rug.

 

(Although there is something slightly self-portraity about this, I think when I did the painting I was reading Geoff Dyer’s Out of Sheer Rage, because Olof does look uncannily like DH Lawrence with dyed blonde hair/beard)
