The classic showdown between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier before their climatic fight “The Thrilla In Manilla” in the 1970’s. My largest inkrub to date, on canvas, with spraypaint and acrylic. Measures 5 feet by 5 feet.

    Thanks for submitting it to Solo Exhibition, Tom. It’s awesome. So this is the one you mentioned in the reception, Monday. 5 × 5 foot canvas, eh? Love that you used spray paint (a nod to your graffiti days).This is knockout!

  • Thanks Fran! Yes, kind of a combination of my “old school” ways with my “new school” technique!
