MOCA Presents: The Canadian Athlete Series

Inspired by Andy Warhol: The Athlete Series, The Museum of Contemporary Art Calgary has decided to create it's own 'Athlete Series' collection. It will feature 10 Celebrated Canadian athletes paired with 10 high profile local artists. I love the concept and I'm honoured to be included…

The first two portraits of the MOCA Canadian Athlete Series are complete and I got to see them last night. Lisa Brawn painted Clara Hughes and Chris Cran painted mine. WOW! My painting brought me right back to that moment in Athens - I can vividly remember the click of the camera that took the photo Chris used for inspiration. 

Eight more portraits will be unveiled over the next few months and the entire collection will be displayed at MOCA Calgary at the beginning of June.
