I met my my latest client at Lomachenko v Linares at Madison Square Garden, New York earlier this year in May 2018.
Mr Alekseyev of Ukraine, a Medical Doctor has a passion for Ukraine fighters. A huge Lomachenko fan as well as a sports doctor. He was a huge fan of Klitchko brothers and saw his very first match at the garden, Wladimir vs Brock, Klitschko knocked him out in the 6th. His idea was the past, present and future of Ukrainian boxing. He wanted to capture the Ukrainian boxers that are making an impact over these generations.
We discussed the idea, composition of fighters and I came up with this plan. He feels that the fighters featured are class acts and are respectful boxers and human beings.
He is extremely pleased with the finished piece. The Original will be exhibited in New York in December 2018
