A Tale of Two Wembleys

Officially commissioned by Wembley Stadium, Ben created twelve canvases and a mural spanning nearly 50 metres along the wall in the club Wembley Gold Section. The installation celebrates both the past and the present and documents the transition from the old to the new Wembley Stadium, with a mural of the crowd linking the two together.

The first six paintings tell the epic story of England’s World Cup triumph over West Germany in 1966. The next six paintings show a memorable England v Spain game at the new Wembley. On the sixth canvas the crowd leaves the painting by walking out of it, along the wall and jumping straight into the seventh canvas, which shows the crowd heading to the new Wembley.
