At first glance you are probably wondering...what is this...is it the top to a Scentsy wax holder (my wife has really been into this lately)? Is it an empty toilet bowl? Is it a portal to another dimension. The last one is partially right, it's a portal. A portal to some fine art!
About a month ago, I was contacted by Victory Fine Art about doing a promotion for you guys. As always, I have to do my 50pt inspection check to make sure this is a legitimate thing by doing research. I won't sign up just for anything and WOULDN'T EVER put you guys through a mess.
I hadn't ever heard of Victory Fine Art and it was a bit strange to be contacted out of the blue about a promotion. So I checked out their website and was pretty amazed by the artwork and design of their prints and canvases and knew that you guys would be amazed as well. So I accepted to do this promo where YOU GUYS will be landing one of these amazing prints as well.
While you wait for details on that, let me give you a brief roundup of Victory Fine Art.
If you were like me and hadn't ever heard of them, here is who they are put best by their words, "Victory Fine Art spent over a full year scrutinizing the renderings of 317 artists to select the four award-winning artists who create original sports artwork exclusively for us. In each painting these artists strive to capture the pulse of the moment and the athlete’s passion for the sport. Each piece of art is anatomically correct and has the proper composition, form and balance"
Victory Fine Art is also officially licensed by National Football League, Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, the National Basketball Association and Mohammed Ali Enterprises.
Now, let's take a gander at what was inside of my portal of art awesomeness.
There was just some connection I made to this piece on their website that made me want it immediately. Which I believe is their goal and the goal of their artists. They put together these wonderful pieces to draw you in and make you feel for the piece. This one was done by award winning sports artist Armando Villarreal.
From the description of this piece, it appears that Armando painted this with automobile paint on aluminum helping create this three dimensional look. It's that kind of creativity that created these colors that really drew me in honestly. The silver background looks great against the Giants blue. Definitely frame-worthy and something I am going to do with it.
A print pieces start out at $35 and canvases could hit $1,000. This Eli would be $385 as a canvas. I can only imagine how impressive that is.
Now let's give you the info on how you can win yourself a print or as I would call it, a man or woman-cave centerpiece.
