Todd Marinovich may not have been a great NFL quarterback. In fact, he was probably a terrible NFL quarterback and it turns out he’s a terrible artist, too.
Marinovich, who’s been the subject of an ESPN documentary and was a star quarterback at USC, is now a recluse… who owns an art gallery. There’s a lot of football art at the Todd Marinovich Art Gallery — go figure — but at least he’s found his calling.
Marinovich was molded to be an athlete by his father from a young age. When he went to USC, he majored in, well… let’s be honest — he was majoring in NFL. Officially, however, Marinovich majored in Fine Arts.
On his website, Marinovich explains his new passion.
I draw from my life experience to create art with ‘feel’ – it’s not perfect and often times not pretty, but my goal is to evoke emotion and communicate ideas. If you as a viewer are moved by my pieces then my goal has been achieved.
Here’s a little bit of Marinovich’s art for you judge.
