I painted Pele in 2007 to celebrate the greatest football player of the 20th Century after carrying out a number of working studies of Pele’ which included watching many videos of him playing. This reference gave me a greater understanding of his particular style of play. The control he had over the ball was amazing!
Pele is a very focused person. When he is talking to you its as though there is nobody else in the room. You have his utmost attention. I think this is why he achieved such dominance on the field while playing. Very quick-witted and a great athlete.
