BUY OWAIN FÔN WILLIAMS’ EURO 2016 MASTERPIECE
He's the Welsh international footballer who's a dab hand with a paintbrush. And now, here's your chance to buy a memory many of us will never forget.
Welsh goalkeeper Owain Fôn Williams has spent five months painting this montage of some of the best moments of the Euro 2016 journey.
On his website, he has written: "The summer of 2016 will go down in Welsh history; it's certainly one that I will never forget. Whilst I was away in France, Joe Ledley and Wayne Hennessey were pestering me to paint them, due to the success I didn't get the time!
"It was only after returning home that the reality of what we had just achieved and experienced as players, back room staff and fans, started to sink in. I realised that this moment in our history fully deserved to be captured on canvas. My aim was to convey - "together stronger". No one individual in the painting stands out, as everyone was central to the success."
The original painting will be on display at the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth from March 2017 as part of the 'Wales Legends’ exhibition. Prints are available through the online shop and part of the proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd.
"It has taken me over 5 months to complete, I just hope that I've been able to capture and do justice to all who contributed towards one of our nations greatest ever achievements. Cymru am byth!"
The "Together Stronger" painting is available in two sizes, ranging in price from £175 to £250.
