Zinchenko had the amazing artwork done by Emma Kenny

The mural took a huge amount of work

To get the effect he wanted, Zinchenko enlisted the help of artist Emma Kenny.

After two weeks of exhausting hard work, Kenny was able to make the footballer’s stunning dream a reality.

She shared an incredible video of the final result to Instagram, showing herself working on the ambitious project.

It features a panoramic view of Emirates Stadium in the glistening sunshine, with two huge portraits of Zinchenko in his Arsenal shirt.

One illustrates him defiantly pointing in celebration, while the other shows his name and No35 jersey.

Emma revealed to SunSport that Zinchenko approached her about the project on Instagram.

She faced a huge challenge getting it ready in time for his move-in date – but came through to produce a masterpiece.

Speaking about Zinchenko’s response to her incredible work, she told SunSport: “It was a massive challenge but super rewarding and he was really happy with the result.”


In addition to the incredible mural, Zinchenko also has inspirational words and phrases written on the walls.

They include “believe, “discipline”, “strong”, “consistency” and “secret”.

The message “1% talent 99% hard work” is also inscribed on the wall.

After posting a clip on social media, Emma received plenty of praise for her incredible artwork.

One TikTok commenter wrote: “That is simply amazing.”

And a second added: “wow, awesome I want this in my house too.”

A third gushed: “This is some insane talent! Great job!”

After finishing the project, Emma wrote on her Instagram page: “Full-time has been called on my biggest ever painting project; 42sq metres, 125 hours, 13 days, 2 portraits, 1 player.

“Aside from being exhausted, I mostly feel incredibly honoured to have been asked to create this beast of a mural for @zinchenko_96.”

Zinchenko has already been a hit at Arsenal since joining from Manchester City in the summer.

He has made eight appearances in all competitions, helping to propel the Gunners to top spot in the Premier League.
