Meg, The Art of Boxing Gallery is all about boxing, a passion that started decades ago.
Meg, The Art of Boxing Gallery
Though brutal and dramatic, a boxing encounter is indeed a beautiful performance, comparable to a violent ballet. Didn’t Jean Cocteau, inspired by Panama Al Brown, compare the fight to “a dance of death, revenge and blood”?
There is certainly beauty to boxing and who else could possibly better capture this than other artists, famous or unknown, inspired by the fight.
The sport has influenced generations of artists for thousands of years. From The Boxer at Rest to George Bellows, Stephen Holland or Leroy Neiman, boxing has been captured in many ways throughout art history. Basquiat and Warhol, to name a few, have also used the sport as a metaphor for their art. Still today, great painters such as Richard T. Slone are commissioned by promoters to create official art for the biggest fights of our era.
With this in mind, Meg was created with the goal of becoming a platform celebrating, promoting and offering boxing art in all its forms.
You will find here not only rare, often unique pieces belonging to the history of the sport, but also original or limited edition artworks of both multi-award winning artists and lesser-known, up-and-coming painters.
Next to the artworks, we offer also a selection of exclusive memorabilia.
We know you share the same passion and hope you enjoy our website.
Thank you for your visit.
