Robert Pires by Nouf Kayal

Nouf Kayal came to London in 2009 and fell in love with Arsenal immediately. She's since fully embedded herself in the Gunners' ever-expanding community; going to games, reading up on the club's history and of course, sporting the red and white shirt with pride. 

Combined with a desire to make use of her Fine Art studies she's since taken her love for all things Arsenal to a new level, producing regular artwork inspired by Arsene Wenger's squad.

She started producing an illustration each day to publish on her Instagram account, celebrating Man of the Match performances and player birthdays, and has since begun taking requests from followers. Even though she's had numerous requests to tackle players from other clubs, Nouf has stuck to her guns claiming she's an artist dedicated to the Gunners alone.

Exhibition: Operation Arsenal Art 2 @ Piebury Corner

We've long championed the creativity of Arsenal's vibrant worldwide supporter base on The Arsenal Collective, so we're very pleased to give a tip of the cap to the second 'Operation Arsenal Art' exhibition taking place at Piebury Corner between 31 October - 2 November.

Featuring exhibits by a number of artists who've kindly shared their work on the pages of this very site, it'll be the perfect opportunity to pick up an early Christmas present, share a pint with likeminded Gooners and of course tickle the tastebuds with the finest pies from around the UK.

The Invincibles by Richard Croft

 

It's hard to believe over ten years have passed since Ruud van Nistelrooy missed a last-minute penalty at Old Trafford as Arsene Wenger's squad ground out a hard fought 0-0 draw against Manchester United to extend their unbeaten league run on the way to 'Invincible' immortality. 

Eager to pay homage to English football's greatest side, photographer Richard Croft exchanged his camera for a pencil before painstakingly drawing the above image featuring four of the 03/04 side's greats against the backdrop of Highbury.

Taking centre stage is Thierry, celebrating THAT goal against Liverpool, while the likes of Bobby, Dennis, Paddy and Freddie have also been beautifully crafted. If you're anything like me, the picture will provoke a wistful sigh of those glorious days gone by. 

Thanks to Richard for sending his work, you can check out his photography portfolio (and impressive CV) here

The Match Day on Hornsey Road

From cherished Cup Final programmes to childhood kits, sticker albums to autographed photos, handbooks to commemorative artwork, football supporters have long formed emotional attachments with memorabilia that pays homage to their relationship with their club.

The furious bidding on lots of Highbury Stadium paraphernalia at the club’s 2006 charity auction serves as proof that the appetite for collecting amongst the Arsenal fraternity is particularly strong, while the popularity of the club’s museum and stadium tours underlines an ingrained eagerness on the part of fans to soak up every aspect of the club’s rich 126-year history.

Given such cravings, we're certain that The Match Day, a new venture by Dan Landau which straddles gallery, museum and shop status, will prove very popular. Situated around the corner from the Emirates on Hornsey Road it showcases supporter memorabilia alongside upcycled Gunners-themed furniture and other unique merchandise which is for sale.

TheCannonIsHeavy.com by Josh Combs

It's one thing writing a blog about every game that Arsenal play, but what about producing unique graphics charting every twist and turn of the season? Well that's exactly what Josh Combs, who describes himself on Twitter as a creative director and Arsenal fan, is attempting to do exactly with his latest Gunners-inspired project on thecannonisheavy.com.

Above you can see the piece he created for the recent trip to Swansea and below his image preceding the win at Sunderland's Stadium of Light. Josh's clever retro-stylings have also been used to capture most of the first team squad, as well as the legend that is Thierry Henry. Well worth a look.

Fingers crossed he gets the chance to put all the images together at the end of the season to celebrate the return of silverware to N5.
