Grant Waters - Welcome to the cage

Welcome to the Cage

June 28, 2014

This painting gave my 2014 exhibition it’s title. It depicts South Moreton Boxing Club’s mixed martial arts team.  I have painted all the brickwork and cage in detail to give the work an intimidating atmosphere and a sense of “being there”. I  have used strong tone and blocks of primary red to create drama. These young men are proud of their fighting prowess and I have tried to express this.
