Henry Fraser

Henry is a former rugby player who, after being paralysed from the neck down, taught himself to draw and paint using his mouth.

“It's a great honour to be chosen to produce work in the build-up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. It's a pleasure to hone my skills again and come up with something that is going to inspire athletes. I hope they see the art and know they're being supported from back home and feel inspired to push that little bit harder.”

“Art was always my main love, but I was involved in triathlon for 11 years and it taught me how important it was to have the support of people around you for motivation and for performance. I wanted to capture how sport brings us all together, despite differences in backgrounds and opinions, and produce a painting that reflects that. This campaign is a great opportunity to show our support for Team GB athletes at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. It makes a massive difference when you have people around you willing you on, so I hope my art inspires the athletes to do their best at the Games and feel the support from home.”

“As someone from a very sporty household, the Olympics were a big part of that. To be part of that in some way now is very exciting, especially because creating this artwork was going to challenge me and is not the kind of thing I would normally paint or create. The Olympics really bring people together and hopefully projects like this get people excited about the Tokyo 2020 Games. I think Team GB will have a lot of support from home. It’s one of the things that we do so well in this country.”

Home Support

Purplebricks is the Official Estate Agent sponsor for Team GB.

Our Home Support campaign encourages people to keep the home fires of support burning with the same intensity since London 2012. This support is especially needed in 2021, where the Games are taking place so far from home and following a year like no other.

We want the nation to get behind Team GB and show their support for the athletes as they compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. By creating a visual show of support for Team GB, we can demonstrate our encouragement for the athletes as they compete this summer.

We have commissioned three artists to each create a special piece of art to celebrate Team GB. The three artists were all chosen due to their roles as elite sportspeople past and present and their ability to create eye catching works of art which exemplify the spirit of British support.
