Becks to create ‘street art’?

David Beckham

David Beckham is apparently taking up street art.

The sportsman announced his retirement from soccer last year but has his hands full with his new Miami soccer league.

As a break from work, it seems the 38-year-old is keen to get creative by using graffiti to paint his fashion designer wife, Victoria.

“Having dabbled with classic painting in the past he now wants to do street art style,” a source told UK newspaper Daily Star.

“First he wants to portray [his] wife… He’s been inspired to take a more edgy approach by his vast art collection, which includes works by Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin.

“It was his New Year resolution and he’s finally getting round to it.”

David announced last week that he had become the owner of Miami’s new soccer franchise.

He promised he would make an effort to get local youngsters involved in the league rather than drafting in sporting talent from elsewhere.

The star and his wife Victoria moved from Los Angeles back to their native England with their four children, Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, eight, and two-year-old Harper, last year.

However, David’s new job will mean the family will need a home in Miami.

“We’re going to be spending a lot of time here,” he told Extra.

“Our children are educated in London, but I’m looking for a place in Miami. I’m excited about that.”
