“African Football Star” by Charley Jones
Charley Jones on this artwork: “This piece is a celebration of human individual identity and beauty. Looking at the diversity of people, it celebrates the cultural wonder of African people in football. However, as it is often the case with my work, the subject is a combination of subconscious ideas and the very journey of the paint on the canvas itself.”
Rich texture and visible brush strokes make this a characteristic painting by this talented artist. Although originally from the United Kingdom, Charley Jones is currently based out of Colombia.
