Daniel Mills

Mills with Boxer, painted rock.
Dan Mills has literally painted a town, well more of a suburb - Naenae is a major suburb in the city of Lower Hutt, New Zealand, where he has painted several murals.

Mills was called on by the charismatic Billy Graham (a former New Zealand and Australasian light welterweight boxing champion). Billy is a motivational speaker and he also runs the Naenae Boxing Academy. Billy had a whole lotta rocks on his hands and he asked Dan to paint a series of all the heavyweight boxing champions in the world on the face of the rocks. These now sit surrounding the Boxing Academy.

Subculture vs. Muserna in Mexico



The “Mano a Mano” between Subculture and Muserna took place in a special room, where they battled inside a boxing ring especially built for the inside. There were three screens, the two on the sides presented subculture and Muserna's personal websites while the one in the middle showed the updates made to the Infomera website. Here, the heavyweights in web art went at it for over four hours, both uploading to the Infomera website. Every few minutes a new page was uploaded in reaction to the previous one, often appropriating the visuals and/or aesthetics of the opponent. The performance started out with playful comments that towards the end turned into bold statements of grandiosity and supremacy of web art by both parties, while also keeping great respect toward the opponent. Both Muserna and Subculture seemed to have enjoyed the process of making ephemeral webpages, which the online community could also enjoy by visiting the Infomera site. To this day, people who saw the event are debating who won, and Subculture playfully claims that he won! Following the spirits of an actual boxing match.

Disney Para Colorear


Joe Hendry

Black Eyed Boy, acrylic on canvas, 90 x 90 cm

This artwork is all about the eyes and the gloves. I was thinking about a black eye when I was painting him and although he doesn't have a black eye as such, the darkness of his eyes add to the broodyness of the painting. This is a big, hi-impact piece of artwork, he is ready to knock your socks off.

Boxe Thai 00, acrylic on canvas, 80 cm x 80 cm.
J'utilise mes propres images multimédia (principalement des vidéos) comme source d' inspiration. Je les choisis selon un processus de résonance entre ce que je perçois de la réalité de départ et la distorsion que lui inflige les traitements visuels et temporels. Je retravaille ces images afin d’amplifier cette “distorsion”.
French, born 1973.

Fernando Castillejo

Cesar Cassiani Canchila, 2006 - 2007, dibujo sobre soporte rígido preparado, 150 cm x 60 cm.

Fernando Castillejo (Barranquilla, Colombia, 1960), ha mantenido en su trabajo artístico una constante con el dibujo hiperrealista. Su conocida serie de caras de jugadores de fútbol, retratados de frente con un impecable dibujo de grafito, da paso ahora a la serie Cuadrilátero (2006-2007) que presenta para Imagen Regional 6; cuatro leyendas del boxeo posan a la manera de los afiches de los eventos deportivos. Las figuras retan al espectador en posiciones que resaltan el gesto del cuerpo y el temperamento que cada uno de los púgiles asume. A pesar de la formalidad con que Castillejo, de origen barranquillero, trata el tema se hace evidente su talento para caracterizar al hombre caribeño.

Alex Queral

Alter Ego, acrylic on carved phone book, 11 in x 9 in.

My fascination with heads began as an art student. For me, the human head was a natural choice of subject matter because of its inherent expressiveness. I carve the faces out of phone books because I like the three-dimensional quality that results and because of the unexpected results that occur working in this medium. The three-dimensional quality enhances the feeling of the pieces as an object as opposed to a picture.
In carving and painting a head from a phone directory, I’m celebrating the individual lost in the anonymous list of thousands of names that describe the size of the community. In addition, I like the idea of creating something that is normally discarded every year into an object of longevity.

New Chocolate


Peter Quillin was born in Chicago, Illinois. He grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and now resides in the hotbed of great past and present boxing talent Brooklyn, New York. Born on June 22, 1983, this Cuban-American is acquiring an extremely large following especially in the New York City area. He signed with Cedric Kushner Promotions in 2006. Eighteen of his twenty fights have taken place in New York. Peter has knocked out 11 of his first 12 opponents in 2 rounds or less.Peter acquired the nickname "Kid Chocolate" from someone in the boxing gym that said he resembled the Cuban native Eligio Sardinas Montalvo. Sardinas Montalvo was first given that nickname and inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1991. However, Eligio Sardinas Montalvo fought most of his career at Featherweight. Eligio was the Junior Lightweight champ from 1931-1933 and the New York World Featherweight champ from 1932-1934. He was one of the most popular fighters in New York in the late 1920's through the 1930's. Like Quillin, Sardinas Montalvo possessed exceptional speed and power in both hands. His notable fights were against Jackie "Kid" Berg (twice - L10 1930, L15 1932), Benny Bass (TKO 7 1931), Tony Canzoneri (twice - L15 1931, KO'D 2 1933), Lew Feldman (TKO 12 1932) and Johnny Farr (4 times - 3 Times W10 in 1932, W10 1933).
