BNS, ‘Ali’, 2017, DETOUR Gallery

Muhammad Ali is ready to throw punches, he's seen here with a new tattoo across his chest and fingers and an 'NWA' hat. Ali's body is semi-transparent allowing the vintage newsprint to be seen through areas of his torso and his head. Black flowers bloom along the edges of the panel, and two animal skulls lay on either side of Ali's head. In gold on the top right-hand corner of the piece, BNS's signature graffiti style spray paint drips downwards towards Ali's fists.
