Arsenal unveil fan mural to complete Emirates artwork revamp

Arsenal’s revamp of the Emirates Stadium artwork will be completed before the end of the season following the unveiling of an eighth design titled ‘Found a Place Where We Belong’; billed by the club as ‘the ultimate illustrated crowd scene’.

The design features 721 supporters from across the ages – each hand-illustrated by artist Reuben Dangoor – as well as a set of bespoke flags and banners featuring well-known terrace anthems.

The name of the piece, which was revealed in January, is inspired by Dennis Bergkamp’s quote: “When you start supporting a football club, you don’t support it because of the trophies, or a player, or history, you support it because you found yourself somewhere there; found a place where you belong.”

In addition to photos shared by supporters, image inspiration was sourced from the archives, including shots from Woolwich, Highbury and Emirates Stadium and away days.

It was originally anticipated that the montage would be completed at the same time as the seven other designs but such has been the scale of the project that the club had little choice but to push back its launch.

If all goes well, the artwork should be in place before Sunday’s final game of the season against Wolves.

Salty because you are not there?

Great artwork

Doug

Love it! Great to see them work in the history of the club

Qwaliteee

Is Fats there with a speech bubble that reads “You bunch of bottling losers!”….?

Johnny 4 Hats

Yeah, he’s right under you wearing your Ozil goggly eyes and holding your “Bring back Mesut” sign…

Qwaliteee

That old chestnut eh?

At least with Ozil we might have got out of our own half against Forest.

This club is pure class, we are the Arsenal!

Too busy and intricate for the location and therefore hard to read as a coherent piece on the exterior of the stadium? Only time will tell.
Imo this should have been used on a fan entrance closer to ground level so people could look at the individual fans and appreciate the intricacies of the design.

Ellis McPickle

Thank you Arsenal, very cool.

Mentalista

At least *those* fans won’t leave the Emirates with the game still running…

The East Stand Lower always did bugger off early…..

Foggy

How dare you

Qwaliteee

Touched a nerve have I..?

“We can see you sneaking out” was always directed at the opposition fans in the Clock End, but it might just as well have been aimed at the East Stand Lower.

It was like watching an old cowboy film in which some prospectors had discovered pure gold in Avenell road.

Haha even I remember seeing that from the North Bank.

Will that bloody dog and the olive tree feature?

Heard on the Arsecast Extra that poor James had a doggie poo accident at home, when his canine companion had hitherto decided that walkies hadn’t been quite the right time.

I’m just wondering if we could get Win to visit the Etihad and leave a nice big brown willow-the-wisp in Guardiola’s office and another slippy sludgy injury hazard in the dressing room.

Would be a nice touch to see Claude included.

Qwaliteee

You could have him pointing out the Mens’ toilets.

“IT’S TIME TO GO!!!!”

I think I see Clive from the AVP in there! Beautiful

I thought I saw on social media that both Clive Palmer and Tim Stillman are included.

That’s me! I’m the one wearing the red shirt.

Very 60’s Peter Blake / Neo-Art Nouveau.

The act you’ve known for all these years – The Arsenal. We all live in a Perry Groves World.

We’re Mik Arteta’s only Arse Club fans…
