NEW works of art are wowing visitors to Huddersfield’s Galpharm Stadium.
The huge contemporary images by local artist and photographer Ali White are on display in the reception.
The fresh look is based around the two home clubs, the Giants and Huddersfield Town.
For the landing Ali created some images of the town, including old and new buildings associated with the clubs.
The artist took nearly 1,000 photographs over several weeks and then worked to transform them into iconic images which depict the many facets of the Stadium.
Permission was even sought from the late Harold Wilson’s wife, Mary Wilson, to place a Town tie on his statue image.
Ali was asked to come up with the images following great feedback to his earlier work displayed there.
Linda Myers, head receptionist who coordinated the project, said: “It’s been an exciting venture working with Ali and the two clubs and the final outcome looks vibrant and very impressive.
“Everything that Ali has created far exceeds our expectations.
“We have had some great comments from visitors and guests at the Stadium.”
Ali, a die-hard fan of both clubs, has also created work for other local venues including the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Head of Steam and J L Brierley’s Turnbridge Mill.
His work is a contemporary form of photomontage that involves digitally cutting up and stitching together many hundreds of photographs.
He said “As a fan it was wonderful to be given access to everything that goes on behind the scenes.
“What I tried to do was to capture the contrast between the drama, the passion, the intensity and the ordinary and quite mundane things that go into making it happen.”
