ABOUT THE ART

As England’s first black player Viv Anderson went a long way to changing people’s attitudes and opinions, blazing a trail for others to follow. If you read any article about Viv, it will invariably begin with a reference to that key achievement.

However, I would argue that he is not defined by it. His place among footballs elite is as much down to his skill, ability and intelligence as anything else.

When I think of Viv Anderson I think of an outstanding international defender, I don’t think of a great black player, I just think of a great player. That is the kind of ‘colour blind’ theme I’m hoping to get across in this illustration.
