“Above The Rim” Art Installation

“I grew up playing and watching basketball since I was 6. My art centres around objects or things that have been more or less sacred to me, like the basket hoop that I spent all my days as a child in front of. I could see the passing of time in how the hoop gradually became worn out, and this fleeting experience that we call life is something that has fascinated me ever since, and that I explore through my artwork.”

Our ambition with the collaboration with Hank Gruner was to show our shared vision and passion for basketball. Hank presented a body of work employed into his artistic methods and unconventional materials to create abstract art inspired by the game of basketball.
