Story behind the artwork
Mesut Özil certainly divides opinion. Going forward, linking play, picking a pass under pressure, this is where he excels. He is legitimately a joy to behold. It's when play is going in the opposite direction that he gets called into question. But this is to miss the point, such an exquisitely singular tool was never meant for the dirty work. I wanted to develop a piece that captured what he does, something that explains his role on the pitch. I used my own process of concept to final artwork as inspiration. The progression of the ball from blueprint to crossing the goal line shows the execution of his thought process and the ball itself becomes his signature 'Ö' with the umlaut coming to final resting place when the pass becomes a goal.
