Papilios Creative

I was delighted to reach a post by Papilios Creative on a Facebook Group that I joined recently. Dave Baldwin is a huge Aston Villa fan and a very impressive artist. He has painted many of the UK grounds and showcased a few on Facebook. I thought the images of various stadiums were truly excellent and brought back many happy memories of my visits to grounds over the past 50+ years.

I introduced myself to Dave Baldwin, the owner and artist, and asked him to tell me a little bit more about his passion. He was kind enough to reply.

“Welcome to Papilios Creative commissioned bespoke watercolour paintings and specialist in football and sports stadiums paintings. As a specialist in football stadiums if there is a particular team that you want, and you can’t see it on our website, then let us know and we will add it as soon as possible for you.

Sports stadium paintings are available as A3 or A4 prints, coasters, keyrings, fridge magnets and greetings cards. It is the aim to eventually paint all 92 English Football League Club grounds which may also include any old grounds that teams used to call home providing that bit of nostalgia. We also do Non-League Football Grounds when requested. Football greetings cards are available in several options such as Father’s Day, Birthdays, Mother’s Day or just blank. You can add that personal message which will be printed inside.

If you want a custom watercolour painting of something that you treasure, send us a picture and I will turn it into a unique keepsake artwork!

A beautiful gift for every occasion, for parents, for an anniversary, birthdays or other special event.

Give someone a special artwork that they will treasure forever!
Sports stadiums, Pet portraits, landscapes, your favourite vehicle or even your house.
