The Game

Tafa Fiadzigbe's avatar Tafa Fiadzigbe

The crowd, the energy and the mythic power of the arena inspired this painting. Is sports a binding stimulus for friendship, courage and excellence or the opiate of the masses? My aim is not to provide answers but to ask questions. Is this painting about football or a metaphor for life? The found objects encrusted on the piece have symbolic meaning. Do they speak to the dedication and allegiance or money and commercialization ?
