World Cup '74 Portrait #151 (Clodoaldo: Brazil)




graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

This most recent drawing features Clodoaldo, who was represented in both the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974’ & Panini ‘M√ľnchen 74’ sticker albums which provide the original source material for the project, but alas missed the 1974 World Cup itself, having to withdraw on the eve of the tournament from the Brazil squad due to injury, thus becoming another of the ‘ghosts’ inhabiting these parts, absent from actual proceedings back in the day yet maintaining a presence via associated memorabilia & such endeavours as this project.
