David Villa

Comissioned as part of an article covering his career at New York City FC.
Couldn’t be used because he turned out to be a sex pest who used his position of power to openly and repeatedly abuse an intern.

Probably too creepy for the original piece.
Now definitely not creepy enough.

Made a full thing that was designed to be cropped. As is my way.

Many, many crops.

A real oil painting under his face.
Very ‘deliberately’ ‘adapted’ by sitting ‘intentionally’ unvarnished in the corner of my bedroom for 9+ years.
