The club have received two new pieces by renowned sport artist Paine Proffitt – just in time for Christmas!
Supporters may recognise the ‘Grimsby Town at Blundell Park’ design from the cover of last season’s FA Cup programme against Scunthorpe United. The other piece, entitled ‘Every Saturday’, is new to the Grimsby Town FC club shop.
Both are now available from Blundell Park priced at £100 each (signed by Paine and professionally framed).
Speaking of his work, the popular artist explained where he gets his inspiration: “I’ve always been passionate about art, as well as sport, and some of my work looks to bring the two together. I’ve also wanted to look at sport and our feelings for it in a unique way and take a different view of the game ... as well as to capture the passion, emotion, and personal (even “religious”) connection so many of us have with sport or our team. I also want to bring these elements into my non-sports work and try to capture a whimsical and dreamlike element in all my paintings.”
Last season over 100 of Paine’s limited edition Grimsby Town prints were sold by the club, with all proceeds going directly to the Youth Development fund.
