Muhammad Ali: Impossible is nothing.

“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 (/ɑːˈl/;[8] born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr.;[9] 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. From early in his career, Ali was known as an inspiring, controversial, and polarizing figure both inside and outside the ring (Wikipedia)

“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.

This Artist Created This Trump Themed Artwork One Month Before The Elections And He Completely Nailed It!

One month before the elections, a London-based artist going by the name E$COBAR (a street art tag based on the controversial Narcos anti-hero Pablo Escobar’s surname but with a “$” stylized “s”) created this satirical artwork based on the GoodFellas movie by Martin Scorsese… with a twist!

The movie’s stars Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta and Joe Pesci, were replaced with no other than … Donald Trump (at the moment president elect), Russian president Vladimir Putin and the supreme leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un as the modern time good fellows.

But wait, the best part is yet to come… how about that line just below the title reading “A Real Story” instead of “A Picture by Martin Scorsese”? Pure genius.

Does E$COBAR have a crystal ball? Probably. All we know is, with this one he totally nailed it.

GoodFellas is available as a limited edition print. The regular edition of 25 in sow sold out and only a handful of Artist Proofs are still available.
