Football on My Mind

Uwais, Age 9

  • Mixed media
  • Acrylic paint and paper on canvas
  • A3 portrait

This is a self-portrait, inspired by traditional portraits in terms of position and imagery. Using a canvas, I have painted my self-portrait in a realistic manner. I then included collaged images from my favourite football icons, moments and imagery across my forehead to represent how important the sport is to me, and how much time I spend thinking about it.
