Story behind the artwork
Rarely has a footballers career been so sharply shaped by their own opinions, both before and after their retirement. What always strikes me about Keane is his ferocious devotion to his own convictions. What categorised him as a player was he got in the faces of opponents, physically and mentally. Rough edges seemed to make up the perimeter of his personality. His aggression and hunger to win formed a barely restrained fuel that powered him to many honours and some dishonours. I wanted this piece to be bold, rugged and draw attention to the name on the jersey and of course his form of leadership, symbolised by the visual metaphor of the altered armband.
