A number of original paintings and prints by local artist Mark Kellett are now on sale to raise money for the Jimmy Dickinson statue.
David James, Darren Anderton, Micky Quinn and Alan Ball are among the former Pompey players immortalised in the artworks.
A painting of Bobby Campbell, signed by the player, and a painting of Jimmy Dickinson which was previously hung in the hospitality lounge at Fratton park are also available to purchase.
A substantial percentage of each sale will go towards funding the Jimmy Dickinson statue, which the PST continue to raise money for. Further information about the statue project can be found here, where supporters can also donate separately.
PST Treasurer Donald Vass said: “We’re really appreciative of Mark for his generosity. He’s been closely tied to the club in the past and was keen to support the statue fundraiser and offer his paintings to raise money. This is a great opportunity for Pompey fans to pick up some terrific artwork while also helping to fund the Jimmy Dickinson statue project as well”.
Mark has previously supported Portsmouth FC during the club’s administration in 2010, when he painted and exhibited a number of artworks which were sold to raise money for the club in its time of need.
He was later appointed as the club’s Official Artist, and painted the famous Frogmore Road entrance for the club to display behind it’s main reception desk, as well as a large mural of some of the club’s most famous players on the walls of the club’s hospitality lounge.
Mark completed his Fine Art degree at Winchester School of Art, and his previous commissions include The Royal Navy.
