The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is one of the most popular events watched by millions worldwide. In 2011 the UFC gained its popularity after a cable expansion in major countries like Canada, US, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
I was thrilled when a private client who has a great passion for the sport commissioned me to create one of the most iconic figures in the sport – Anderson Silva. Silva is of Brazilian decent and holds the longest winning streak and title defence streak in UFC history. Dana White (president of the UFC) proclaimed Silva as the greatest fighter in the history of mixed martial arts.
This specific portrait of Silva was made from glass pieces painted in 5 colors (black, white, and 3 tones of grey). To finish this piece off beautifully I installed it with 6 brushed aluminum standoffs.
