Farrar Road - Owain Fôn Williams

Known as a professional goalkeeper, the latest exhibition at Storiel offers an opportunity to see Owain Fôn Williams’ talent and passion for painting.

A member of the successful Wales football squad at Euro 2016, Owain Fôn Williams currently plays for Hamilton Academical in Scotland, and follows a recent period playing in the USA. Despite the training, it is obvious that art plays and important part in his life.

This collection of new artwork reflects how his early years in the Nantlle Valley and his world-wide experiences gained from his football career has influenced his work, where people and relationships are of constant importance to him.

Owain said: “If I’m not wearing my goalie gloves and my football kit, then without a doubt I’ll have my paint brush in hand and a canvas on the easel.”

The paintings portray the simple everyday things, people at work or at Leisure, with a sense of community fundamental to us all.

The ‘Snippets of Life’ exhibition will be open from Saturday 9 November until 4 January at Storiel, Bangor.
