Lebron Taking it to the Rack

Piece description from the artist

I grew up playing basketball and become a good player. And when I stopped playing I became a radio talk show personality called "basketball Jones". I love the game. Always have and always will. Lebron is remarkable in many ways. He still plays at the highest level even after 17 years in the NBA. I've been wanting to paint basketball for a long time and finally decided to go ahead and 'just do it!'

About Philip Levine

New York, NY

Ever since Philip started painting 30 years ago there was one main focus that resonated with him: the figure. He studied anatomy for artists and spent hundreds of hours learning, experimenting with color, composition, and drawing. Because he's spent well over a thousand hours painting the figure from life it's enabled him to stretch out and create more interesting canvases using the camera as a tool. Some of the themes he's painted include NYC street scenes, boxing (he boxed years ago), the Civil War, the Indian Wars and a series of paintings of imaginary scenes inside museums pulling together a variety of images to create those paintings.
