Frolunda Hockey Player (F. & S. II.366) is a signed screen print on Lenox Museum Board made by the acclaimed 20th century artist, Andy Warhol, in 1986. Coming in an edition size of 100, the print shows Christer Kellgren, a hockey player from the Swedish club Frölunda HC. Kellgren is rendered in Warhol’s signature Pop Art style, characterised by his use of bright and bold colours, crayon-like gestural lines and overlapping colours. Set against a black backdrop, Kellgren's body is outlined in red and brown lines which contrast with the vibrant green, white and yellow of the player’s hockey uniform. The detail of the player’s uniform contrasts markedly with the simplicity of his face which is void of any detail.
Warhol was commissioned by the Art Now Gallery in Göteborg, Sweden to produce this print. Although Warhol was not particularly interested in sports, preferring instead to party with the hottest celebrities in Studio 54, the artist was fascinated by stardom and fame. Warhol found the way in which athletes developed celebrity status fascinating and was intrigued by the way sports assumed such an important role in American popular culture.
Other athletes Warhol depicted in his Pop Art portraits were Wayne Gretzky, Muhammad Ali and Dorothy Hamil.
