ALBION supporters have given a rapturous response to Channel 4’s ‘Artist In Residence: The Football Club’.
The television documentary, where artist Tai-Shan Schierenberg followed the Baggies through a turbulent campaign and committed his impressions and observations to canvas, aired on Sunday evening.
Albion are the first team to be involved in such a project, and if you missed the first airing then don’t worry - it’s available here via the Channel 4 website.
Fantastically compelling television. An intriguing insight into a tough year for our club. That goal against Spurs will never not give me goosebumps.— All Things Albion (@AllAlbion) July 29, 2018

Fantastic documentary about what it’s like to be a football supporter. An amazing artist and presenter, previous non football fan Tai-Shan Schierenberg celebrating the goal against Spurs is a great TV moment. #TheFootballClub— David Quine (@david_quine) July 29, 2018
After telling the story of a roller-coaster season, featuring interviews with coaching staff, players and fans alike, the documentary concluded with Tai revealing the paintings he had worked on throughout the roller-coaster season.
We know that supporters are anxious to find out when they can see the artwork, and we can confirm the club are in discussions with Tai and the producers to facilitate an exhibition of the work.
