When Jeremy was asked to be the 2017 Wimbledon Championship Artist, he jumped at the chance to document his favourite sporting event – but he had no idea just how close he’d get to some of the greatest players the sport has ever seen: Murray, Nadal, Djokovic, and that year’s champion, Roger Federer.
Every day for two weeks, Jeremy had access to a different part of the All England Club as it played host to the oldest tennis tournament in the world. From watching the greats on the practice courts, to witnessing Federer lift the trophy for a record eighth time; from rubbing elbows with world leaders in the Royal Box, to eating strawberries and cream up in the gods.
The following Jeremy was asked to produce an exhibition of paintings based on defining moments from Wimbledon championships of the past. These, and the paintings he produced at the 2017 Championship, were exhibited to mark the All England Club’s 150th anniversary in 2018, with all proceeds going towards the Wimbledon Foundation.
