"Messi" by Daniel Kliger

Oil on canvas. 18x24.

"Sport seems to me the best expression of modernism. It is a balance between war and art, competition and beauty. Lionel Messi, as one of our greatest footballers, is also our greatest warrior and our greatest artist. Here Messi finds himself in an impressionist landscape and under the more violent sky of a war painting like Benjamin West’s ‘The Death of General Wolfe.’"

Daniel Kliger lives in New York City, where he attends Columbia University. We’re delighted to be featuring “Messi” on AFR. [Posted by Eric]
