Meet the talented creators of our Sports Stadia Art
D J Rogers
The artist D J Rogers mainly works with illustrative and fine art techniques, these are what we would say are his forte's.
Combining oil painting and ink work with colour pencils, his two main loves, sport and portrait art can be seen vividly through his portfolio of nearly 100 pieces.
Through the early 90's he studied at both amersham college and Portsmouth university, finally gaining an honours degree.
Continuing through the 00's with commissions and ! A 5 year service within the London ambulance service on emergency ambulances. He left to pursue a full time position as an artist which he has continued with ever since.
Achievements to date are as follows, Royal Mail stamps, art featured in UFO magazine international, portrait pieces of both Alan Turing and Churchill, which were featured on the front and back cover of the highly esteemed international quarterly magazine, The Finest Hour.
Since launching Sports Stadia Art his contributions are mainly oil paintings which form some of the images you see today.
His personal favourite stadia art from the collection is Franklins Gardens, Noucamp, Bernabau and Lords.
His biggest regrets are ........every time he dips his paint brush into his coffee cup mistaking it for the cup of turps which sits beside it...... !!!!!!!
We hope you enjoy his work.
Brian started Illustrating Sports Stadia Art in 2008. He was fascinated with the architectural designs of these colloseums of sporting excellence, buildings that not only stand proud but are also Sporting Arena's, drawing not only dedicated loyal fans but also visitors from far and wide.
Brian does not claim to be a football fan as his first love is for Motorsport and Motor Racing. You may ask how and why he was inspired to leave the fast paced adrenalin driven world of Motorsport? It is simple, he got it, understanding that these monumental buildings housing dedicated fans are much more than just structures strategically placed in each of their 'Borough's', they are monumental pillars of Sporting excellence.
The more that he looked into preparing, planning and completing each one of these unique stadiums he realised what they truly stand for. Since starting with his first Illustration, the new Wembley Stadium, he has been inspired enough to totally dedicate all of his time and efforts to doing each and every one justice, whether it be Football, Rugby, Cricket, Basketball, Baseball and infact any stadium from around the globe.
