Description

Todd Marinovich is a former American and Canadian football quarterback. He played for the Los Angeles Raiders of the National Football League and also in the Canadian Football League, Arena Football League, and Development Football International. Marinovich is known for the well-documented, intense focus of his training as a young athlete and for his brief career upon reaching the professional leagues that was cut short primarily because of his addiction to drugs.

In college, Todd became a fine arts major and loved it. For the first time, he enjoyed school. He found photo-realism banal; the whole point of painting was to create, not replicate. Todd was drawn to paintings that burst with color, that did not seem precise or carefully planned, that looked like they just flowed spontaneously out of the artist.

Marinovich’s angst and frustration from his upbringing are presented here in his original artwork of a disappointed young man sitting on a football helmet. The colors are vibrant and suggests the clinical toggle Todd felt between his adult consciousness and child consciousness while painting. Perhaps allowing for his adult self to eventually comfort the child who needed it?

The original art measures 18.5″ x 22″ and was signed by the artist Todd Marinovich at the bottom.
