Chez Guillaume

"Boxing provides a rich ropic for photography: each boxer's gesture and each moment of the match contains a curious drama worth ready to be seized upon. The twenty photographers of this exhibition made no mistake about that.
Notably, Philippe Bordas, Bruno Charoy, Philippe Loppareli, Jean Marc Fiess not to mention ?our? talented Bertrand Desprez."
An exhibiton at l'espace Guillaume, Paris, last year.

Delilah Montoya

Jackie Chavez, 2006, photography
Delilah Montoya was born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1955. Art is synonymous with her quest to define herself as a Chicana living the perpetual tensions of a minority woman in the United States. Committed to exploring her Hispanic roots, Montoya has explored the icons of New Mexico, including the religious heritage of her "penitente" grandfather from the Las Vegas area. Her art weaves together her spiritual, political and emotional visions. Many of her images are intriguing assemblages comprised of painting, printmaking and photography.

Davey Moore in Sculpture

I recently received the last issue of Islas Magazine, a Cuban Negro themed publication that brings an interesting interview of Elio Ruiz, a U. S. based Cuban filmmaker with Ultiminio Ramos, whose unforgettable career was always haunted by other boxers deaths and destiny.

Wandering the boxweb I have found these pictures of the sculpted image of Davey Moore, the guy who Ramos didn't kill.

"I conceive the practice of art as a matter of ethics and a way to give a positive meaning to my own vision of the world, with all due modesty. The mediums, drawing first, painting, sculpture, are gifts given to us by nature, which we use in our everyday work, by paying tribute to the greatness of everything living on our planet, created for the love of itself and must be celebrated."

French, born 1945.

Boxing Gloves Painting (Painting Boxing Gloves)

Dundas West's iconic boxing gloves at Bloor Street Boxing & Fitness, Toronto, Canada, are solid red again. Harsh winters and UV rays had taken it's toll. Chipping paint and uneven colors had plagued the gloves for a number of years.

Mary Crittenden

Acrylic on Illustration Board 16.5" x 12"

Mary began painting before she was seven years old. Her father brought home enamel paints from work. Although these didn’t work too well, she did the best she could with the tools and talent she had to work with. Mary was hooked. She continued painting through high school where her teachers encouraged her to try for art scholarships; And so it went.
Now, as a middle-aged adult, Mary Crittenden is still painting. The enamel was replaced long ago with acrylics and oils, and the subjects in her paintings are so life-like they almost look like soft photographs. In fact, her paintings have a three dimensional appearance because of her expertise in handling depth perception. Mary has always enjoyed old photographs for the feelings they evoke of a more leisurely era. “I try to make them come alive,” she explains. Her flair for telling visual tales, her sense of design, and her love of color has led to Mary’s current focus: using bright, almost impressionistic oils to make historical snapshots as fresh as if they had been photographed today.

Sideshow Collectibles is proud to bring you the 20-inch Rocky Statue, created and manufactured by Schomberg Studios.

Danza-Boxeo (The Medina Method of Cuban Salsa Inspired by Boxing Fundamentals)

Yolaidis y Medina

Medina y Yolaidis

Dancing inspired by boxing may seem an odd combination, but not so in Cuba where boxing is huge and dancing the national pastime. Young Cuban boxers are trained to be high powered dancers because the most effective winning strategy in boxing is mastering dance moves and body rhythm to avoid being punched by your opponent.
Geodanis Medina is a gifted Cuban boxer who after years of thought, experimentation, and hard work, has integrated his two great passions, boxing and salsa. Drawing from his extensive training in boxing, he has developed a unique system of dance that has it's own philosophy, technique, style, and beauty.
Medina's core philosophy: "Dance from the ground up".

Joe Louis Knocked Down by Max Schmeling, 1938, etching, 3 5/8 in x 5 7/8 in.
Max Schmeling, who was the Heavyweight boxing champion of Europe was a 10-1 underdog when he faced Joe Louis on the night of June 22, 1938 at Yankee Stadium. The odds were also 4-1 that Schmeling would not be on his feet by the seventh round, and 2-1 that Louis would win by a knockout. To the surprise of the world Schmeling knocked Louis out in the twelfth round. Louis had also been down in the 4th round, which this amazing etching visually describes. Two years later Louis avenged the defeat, knocking out Schmeling early in the first round at the same venue. Schmeling remained friendly with Louis for the rest of his life, giving him money, and even paying for his funeral.
Purdy was a PWA muralist and cartographer.

The Singh Twins

The Greatest (from SPOrTLIGHT Series)

London born twin sisters Amrit and Rabindra are contemporary British artists of
International standing whose award winning paintings have been acknowledged as
constituting a unique genre in British Art and for initiating a new movement in the
revival of the Indian miniature tradition within modern art practice. Describing their
work as Past - Modern (as opposed to Post Modern), their work engages with
important areas of critical debate - challenging existing stereotypes and redefining
generally accepted, narrow perceptions of heritage and identity in art and society.
Combining elements from Western and Eastern aesthetics they assert the value of
traditional and non European art forms to the continuing development of
Contemporary Art practice - exploring cultural, social and political issues of global
significance within a highly decorative, often witty and symbolic style which has
universal appeal and transcends cultural barriers.
