Boxing Club Series

A few months ago I started to work one one of the coolest art projects I ever got involved with, painting the portrait of some professional boxers for the merchandise. Although I am still far from seeing the completion of the series in full, I decided to post the first portrait of the bunch, Okello Peter. Okello is a professional boxer originally from Uganda currently working in Asia. What inspired me for this painting were the wild colours of the fire and the wild nature, the ancient African tribes and of course, the letter O.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my good friend Loren Goodman for this commission. I promise to finish the remaining paintings very soon!
