“Gooaalll!” was the unified chant throughout Mexico after their team defeated the power house Brazilian soccer team. Sports bars, private homes, beachside resorts, all erupted into celebratory rants and raves as Mexico’s Oribe Peralta scored his second goal of the game on a magnificent header to ice Mexico’s first Olympic Soccer Gold Medal.
World renowned sports and entertainment artist and resident of Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Malcolm Farley, has unveiled a five painting series created from the historic Olympic Games in London this past summer. “Global Gold” represents Malcolm’s global lifestyle as well as capturing the five memorable moments of the games that most influenced him while observing competitions of all disciplines.
Sports wise, Malcolm possesses an illustrious track record as the “Artist to the Stars“. Has been commissioned globally to chronicle several Olympic Games, as well as Super Bowls, World Series, US Opens, and Stanley Cup Finals, to name just a few. Entertainment wise, Farley has captured legendary names live onstage with such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Harrison Ford, Seal, Carlos Santana, and Ringo Starr, and events such as the Grammys, The Oscars, and Presidential Inaugurations.
The highly colorful, energy packed painting of Peralta scoring the winning goal in front of frenetic crowd at Wembley Stadium, relies on Malcolm’s knowledge of the game, which comes from playing soccer in Asia as a teenager. His signature blend of composition and juxtaposition of complimentary colors, combined with the gestured application of paint, make the canvas come alive as the players seem to actually be moving.
He has unveiled a series of limited edition canvases from the image, each piece is hand embellished, making each one a unique piece of art. Each canvas is signed and gold by Malcolm Farley as well.
