Pelé: Art, Life, Football

26 Sep 2015 - 18 Oct 2015

In celebration of Pelé’s 75th Birthday and his lifetime of achievements, Halcyon Gallery and its internationally acclaimed artists have created a unique exhibition to honour this legend; his creativity, his life and his incredible sporting career. Opening on September 26th, the exhibition comprises original paintings and sculptures from several contemporary  artists including Lorenzo Quinn, Mitch Griffiths, Russell Young, Pedro Paricio, Ernesto Cánovas, Santiago Montoya and Raphael Mazzucco. One of the exhibition highlights is Andy Warhol’s original 1977 painting Pelé; one of ten portraits which formed Warhol’s famous series: Athletes, as well as a unique range of photography outlining key moments in Pele’s decorated career. Halcyon Gallery is very proud to exhibit, for the first time on public view, original artworks created by Pelé himself, alongside exciting artefacts and memorabilia, many of which have never been on public display outside of Brazil.

“I was very honoured when Halcyon Gallery told me that they were going to create the Art, Life, Football exhibition to celebrate my birthday in London. Art has played a big role in my life for many years and it has been a very humbling experience to have so many talented artists creating such beautiful work in my honour.” Pelé
