The Art of Sport: Artists Investigates the Notions of Sports Portraitures
"It's not just about sports art but more so creating an authenticated rendering of an athlete's moment in time. The inspirational story behind that art piece is what gives value to that piece," Joe explained about his work. "The notions of sports portraitures are my interpretation, my inspiration and my passion of an athlete portrait. Working from game experiences to my canvas I explore what a sport portrait is. This exhibition includes traditional acrylic paintings with a twist of realism to investigate and push the boundaries of the portrait."
