Slone has been the official artist of the International Boxing Hall of Fame for over 20 years. His artwork has been used on the official posters and programs for most major boxing events in the last 15 years. He has been seen painting live on national television.
Internationally renowned, multi-award artist Richard T. Slone was born in 1974 in northern England. He is self-taught and will later combine his love of art with his ability as a boxer.
Slone would eventually pursue an offer to become a boxer under the guidance of boxing great Joe Frazier in Philadelphia.
After an amateur career, he will decide not to turn professional but instead focus on painting the sport he loves. The Ring magazine will give him his first published work. He would later say: “My experience in the ring adds to my paintings.”
It is obvious Slone is passionate about the sport. His artwork reflects the deep respect and admiration he has for the fighters. “The least I can do is to paint them”, he says. “Everyone admires a great fighter and as an artist it’s easy to be inspired by such.”
The interest and demand in Slone’s art has been exceptional over the past years. He has become popular with notable collectors including Bruno Mars, Hugh Hefner, Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela and many more. His work can be seen on the covers of many magazines, including The Ring, and has been used by many companies and advertising agencies.
He is compared to American artist LeRoy Neiman, who was considered the leading sports artist in the world before his death in 2012.
Richard T. Slone is without any doubt the number one artist for boxing in activity.
