Stephen Holland – The Art of Sports & Popular Culture

Stephen Holland

Stephen Holland was born in 1941, and he is an American artist known for his portraits of athletes and celebrities. His most famous paintings have been of Muhammad Ali. Altogether they have been released as numerous limited edition prints, most of which are sold out now. As a young artist, Holland could not afford to hire live models. The images he found in boxing magazines became his subjects. He attended the School of Industrial Art, which devoted half of each day to art studies. Later he attended Pratt Institute, the Art Studies League, and the School of Visual Arts, all in New York City. He was the official artist of the LA Kings and one of the twelve artists selected by the United States Olympic Committee to represent the 100th Anniversary of the Olympics. He completed paintings for the Baltimore Ravens Walk of Fame, celebrating their path to victory in Super Bowl XXXV. In 2008 his art commemorated the year-long celebration of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 50 years in Los Angeles.
