Leamington artist marks Ali’s 70th

BOXING legend Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday this week prompted Leamington artist Paul Oz to create this new portrait.

Paul has been commissioned by Muhammad Ali Enterprises to paint the famous iconic face and this is his third piece in the firm’s official fine art series.

He was invited to display the work on Ali’s birthday on Tuesday at Generation Pop! in Manchester during the afternoon - where he and the painting were filmed by Sky Sports and BBC News 24. He then headed to Sportsframe in Northampton in the evening, where he unveiled the second of four similar portraits he plans to create.

The portraits and prints of them are available to buy. Contact Paul by emailing [email protected] or call 07841 130428.
