“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
Muhammad Ali (/ɑːˈliː/; born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.; January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016) was an American professional boxer and activist. He is widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports figures of the 20th century.

“God’s got me here for something. I can feel it. I was born for everything that I’m doing now.”

UNIQUE Trial Proofs by E$COBAR
Upon the tragic passing of Muhammad Ali in 2016, pop/urban artist E$COBAR created a tribute printed edition called ‘Impossible is nothing.’ in a limited edition of 25 which went to sell out very fast. Only a few signed proofs are still available. The colourway for the main edition (plus proofs) is red but the artist experimented with different colour permutations before settling on red.
Some are available, all are unique trial proofs, signed.
“It’s hard to be humble, when you’re as great as I am.”
An unsigned edition of 150 in the original colourway (sheet size 21 x 21cm) is available, framed and with COA attached on the back. This is an ideal inspiring and beautiful gift for someone special.
