The 'Art, Life, Football' exhibition will soon be opening its doors at London's Halcyon Gallery. In celebration of Pele's 75th birthday, gallery will feature a number of athletic portraits.

The exhibit will feature a number of works celebrating the soccer legend's life and career, one of which is Stuart McAlpine Miller's Disney-themed collection. The images typically feature a collage of Disney characters and whimsical colors as a background to a portrait of Pele.

When asked about why he chose Disney as the theme in his athletic portraits, Miller said that comic books, cartoons and Disney characters allow him to project ideas of success in the future. Essentially, Miller acknowledges the timelessness of Disney and its long track record of re-invention and imagination. Both Disney and Pele are true markers of success and creativity.
