“Manny Pacquiao” / Latex on Canvas / 72” x 60” / 5.4.2009 / Painting Log #2
I had the opportunity to visit the Philippines a few years ago, and while I was there, I went to villages that were just like the places Manny Pacquiao is from.
I am personally inspired by the “Pac Man” fighter because I’ve seen where he is from, and it amazes me how much he has persevered through his circumstances.
This painting was created today, inspired by Pacqiao’s recent win, defeating Ricky Hatton, knocking him out in the second round. Rising up as an inspiration for people around the world.
