World Cup '74 Portrait #21 (Enrique Chazarreta: Argentina)


graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Picking up the threads again of the ‘hauntological’ drawing project, the portrait subject today is Enrique Chazarreta, who featured in both the FKS & Panini ‘World Cup ‘74’ collectors’ sticker albums, was selected as a member of the official Argentina squad for the Finals (subsequently making one brief substitute appearance in the tournament), & has already been represented here at TOoT in the ‘pixellated’ form of the original 1974 World Cup drawing project that began around 18 months ago & continued until about this time last year before being abandoned.
