Attitude Venezuelan surrealist, Jota Leal, took four months to produce this painting of Los Angeles Rams legend and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, #75, Deacon Jones.   Being from a country that knows little about American football, he studied countless photographs of Deacon before he began. After months of analyzing Deacon’s character on the field, this NFL painting of a true football legend was completed. Without ever having met Deacon or ever having seen him play, Jota had captured the essence of the man on the football field. The piece is named “Attitude” because the artist had captured something so special—the look in his eyes, the terrifyingly threatening expression on his face—it was the way that Deacon looked every time he approached the line of scrimmage, with only one thing on his mind—“to tear your damn head off.” It’s no wonder that he was one of the most feared players who ever played the game he so loved. Deacon Jones coined the term “Sack”, perfected the vicious move called the Headslap that was outlawed by the League when he retired, is credited with changing the game of defensive football single handedly, was voted unanimously to the NFL’s All Time 75 Year Team, and after his passing in 2013, is the only player in almost 100 years of the NFL for whom the NFL has created an award in his name that will live forever. You don’t need to be a fan of any team to love this NFL art. The entire feeling of this painting gives a sense of timelessness for all franchises and generations to enjoy.   It is a surrealistic NFL painting of what the National Football League is all about—the very greatest legends of the game forever. It belongs in any man cave or as a sports art collector’s favorite piece of NFL memorabilia.
