Thanks to generous support from Optima Medical, WiSH has been able to purchase the original painting of “Home” by local artist Daniel McFall, which will be displayed in the stadium
Daniel, who lives in Tooting, remembers fondly cheering on the Dons at the old Plough Lane ground and told us: “I loved creating the AFC Wimbledon painting. Being a supporter of the Lads back in the days of Alan Cork, John Fashanu, Dave Bassett, I just had to paint it. Hearing about WiSH, a charity dedicated to preserving Wimbledon’s football heritage, I just love the history of keeping this old club of ours alive and was honoured to feature my painting ‘Home’”.
Daniel’s art is in the style of the great early/mid 20th-century artist, LS Lowry, and his depiction of the main entrance of our new stadium combines historical overtones with its very modern setting: an urban landscape with Wimbledon fans depicted as the stylistic“matchstick” figures.
It’s a stand out work of art and one WiSH is proud to include in the collection of items that help to tell The Greatest Story in Football. We are producing a limited run of 50 prints, all numbered and signed by the artist, framed and mounted for £29.95. They are on sale via the WiSH website and social media with 50% of the profit going to support the artist and 50% to WiSH as a registered charity. So a great Christmas gift to someone special or indeed to yourself, while supporting good causes as well.
There are less than 20 prints available. Please click here to order your limited edition Plough Lane print.
These will be available to collect from the Stadium from Saturday 4th December or can be posted at additional cost.
