    About London 2012 Official Poster - For the Unknown Runner by Chris Ofili

    This high quality poster has been faithfully reproduced to show all the details from its original design.

    London 2012 commissioned twelve leading contemporary artists to create the official posters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. No longer in print and with only a few copies left in stock, these premium-quality posters, printed in the UK on 200gsm FSC paper, are likely to become sought-after collectors items.

    Chris Ofili creates paintings inspired by personal experience, race, folklore, biblical narrative, and for the last few years the island of Trinidad where he lives. In The Unknown Runner a figure, framed by a classical Greek vase, sprints by a watching crowd (the runners on a hill that Ofili can see from his window inspired the title).

    The vase motif appears to reference the Ancient Olympic Games, which provided an arena for artistic and cultural expression as well as sporting excellence. Somewhere between super-athlete and mythical being, The Unknown Runner is a powerful dedication to both Olympic history and the future stars of the London 2012 Games.

    Available with bespoke, expertly handcrafted frames.
