A captivating work of cultural blending unlike anything created prior, The Art of Basketball was crafted for fans of Basketball, Japan, NBA and Culture.

A Torii gateway becomes the backstop for a basketball hoop, with a backdrop of mountains and a vast, snowy sky. Brief, accompanying text describe the thematic connections between each artworks converging themes, and explore the roles that culture, community, celebrity, and games play in our daily lives.
