Arsenal FC has unveiled its new artwork. Eight new pieces have been created by Jeremy Deller, David Rudnick and Reuben Dangoor in collaboration with a group of Arsenal supporters.

The design process for the artworks began in April 2022 with workshopping sessions held to curate insight on the club’s heritage, culture and community. This is reflected in each of the pieces, with the eight artworks centred on different themes. Installation of the new artwork on the football club’s home stadium will begin today and continue over the coming weeks. There’s also an exhibition of the artwork is currently open until tomorrow at Candid Arts Trust in London.

Speaking on the project, Turner Prize winning artist Deller said, “As an Islington resident for more than 20 years, where Emirates Stadium has been my landscape, I’m so proud to have played a part in this project. The final artwork is a product of the collaboration and hard work of so many in the Arsenal community and it adds another layer to the rich history of this iconic corner of north London.”

“Across the eight pieces of art we hope we’ve created something for everyone,” Rudnick added. “The type-based designs implement typefaces from a project we’ve been undertaking with the club and the supporters’ workshops, to craft a set of voices incorporating both patterns and symbols synonymous with Arsenal, and a clean typographic system that shows how our values are present not just in the future we are building, but all the way to the club’s origins in 1886.”

Dangoor, who is a lifelong Arsenal supporter, also added that, “It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Arsenal supporters to bring their love and passion for the club to life. I’m a lifelong Gooner so it’s all a bit surreal and this has to go down as one of my favourite projects ever. The legends I’ve had the pleasure of drawing are so iconic and they mean so much to me personally. I hope lovers of Arsenal love the work as much as I do.”
