Jonny Wilkinson - from Big Art

England's world famous Fly Half Jonny Wilkinson has been captured beautifully for all time, by Artist Julian Kirk of BigArt, in that rugby world cup winning kick pose! Julian who founded BigArt after many years working as a studio artist and illustrator in Britain and abroad wanted to establish an Internet-based art gallery and so evolved BigArt.

Julian took time out of his busy schedule to speak to Unofficial England Rugby and tell us what had inspired him to paint Jonny as he did.

"It was a fairy tale played out on national television. I could hardly bear to watch the final and kept going into the kitchen. But when the kick came I saw it live and gave the biggest cheer this house has ever heard. It was a splendid English sporting moment, and I felt compelled to capture it in a picture. I did an oil painting in a fluid style which seems to suit the spontaneous nature of the event. The moment just before Jonny's boot hits the ball is packed with potential energy. A great shot and a lasting image"! - Julian Kirk.
