Leeds United legend Norman Hunter to be commemorated with painting by celebrated artist Ben Mosley
Leeds United legend Norman Hunter is set to be commemorated with a painting by celebrated sports artist Ben Mosley.
Mosley is the official artist for Team GB at the upcoming Olympic Games and has also painted two stunning murals at Wembley Stadium celebrating the history of the England football team and the home of football.
He painted “Norman’s Victory” after meeting Hunter’s family following the former footballer's death from COVID-19 earlier this year.
Mosley will be presenting the commissioned painting to Hunter's family but has also created 25 rare limited edition prints to be sold to raise money for the Leeds Hospitals Charity in Hunter’s memory.
