Story behind the artwork
I was in New York at the Kicking & Screening Exhibition in 2013. Doodling in my sketchbook I got the notion I'd like to draw Cantona, but just boil him down to essentials. Over a day and a half I drew his portrait 53 times. At some stage I landed on this approach. The seagull also arrived somewhere in the process. I like this piece because it contrasts the solemn expression of Cantona with the farce of having a seagull on your head. And that's what he is, a bit of both.
