Premiership RugbySpecial Builds

Gallagher Premiership Rugby wanted a visual spectacle to launch the start of the season.

A giant portrait of rugby players Joe Marler, Maro Itoje and Faf de Klerk was unveiled at Twickenham Stadium in London – the biggest creation of its kind.

The 7000m squared portrait (the UK’s biggest outdoor painting) covered the entirety of the Twickenham pitches.

It was created overnight by a team of eight artists using white pitch marker and was visible to Heathrow passengers flying above the stadium.
