As part of a relaunch, bespoke football design outlet, Art of Football, have released a new range of Newcastle United-themed t-shirts, sweatshirts and prints.
The newly released clothing range includes a number of different designs, capturing iconic moments from over the years and recasting them in a sharp, abstract artistic style.
Designs include the ‘First of Many’, Alan Shearer’s first goal for the club (a curling freekick against Wimbledon on his home debut), the ‘Albert Chip’ (need I say more), and a more contemporary ‘Flying Start’ design that recasts Dwight Gayle scoring one of his three goals in the 4-3 victory over Norwich this season.
Of all the designs available, my favourite is without doubt the aptly named ‘Mackem Slayer’ print, immortalising Shola Ameobi’s blistering half volley in that oh-so glorious 5-1 victory over Sunderland a few years ago. If your memory needs refreshing (as if…), you can view it here.
With prices on prints ranging from £9.99 (A4 Unframed) to £44.99 (A2 Canvas), it would be fair to say that these are an absolute steal, and very Christmas Gift-worthy.
The T-shirts are also refreshingly affordable, and are on sale for £25 in size Small to 2XL in black, dark navy, white and grey.
Speaking to the founder and owner of Art of Football about the inspiration and motivation behind the business, he said:
Our hand crafted designs try to emulate the beauty of those split second moments, the moments you never forget, as we look to capture the energy, passion and euphoria that erupts from that one magical kick of a football.
We only produce a limited number of each design, so your T shirts, like any good piece of art, are exclusive and completely original.
Off the back of this, we at The Spectator’s View have teamed up with Art of Football to bring you guys an awesome giveaway: a free A4 #NUFC print of your choice.
