Paine Proffitt

"Whyyyyyyyyy whhhhhhhy whhhhhhhhhhhhy Delilah?" the roar of a working class generation over the freezing terraces across the country on a grey Saturday morn- the real britannia- an inspiration?
 The latest addition to our visual melting pot is the work of one Paine Proffitt an American artist currently residing in the city of Stoke-on-Trent perhaps best known for his vintage-'esk' imagery surrounding British football culture.
For a few hours this week Proffitt was good enough to allow me through the door of his studio- a veritable treasure trove of painterly canvas creations to get my teeth into.
From his commercial pieces to his darker personal projects Proffitt's style is bold and consistent.
I was especially interested to see his growing collection of match programs that form a series of commissions by Proffitt, in years to come collectors items- i'm sure.
