NY Giants Quarterback Eli Manning
Giclée Canvas Print signed by world renowned artist William Lopa.
Each piece is individually hand embellished, hand signed, and numbered.
Lopa chose to concentrate his art on what he loved in a genre he found most challenging and enjoyable; kinetic impressionism. Working in acrylics, Lopa uses a "splatter" technique where the colors are applied with a pallet knife. The use of bold colors and splatter technique captures the image and spirit of an athlete in motion.
Lopa’s artwork has been featured in art galleries across the country, such as the Markman Galleries in Las Vegas, Gallery Four at the Garden State Art Plaza, Field of Dreams throughout the country, Artexpo in New York, Just Ducky in Chicago, and in several halls of fame memorabilia franchise stores. Even more special to Lopa is that his paintings are collected and hang in the homes of such greats as Muhammad Ali, Tiki Barber, Roger Clemens, Michael Jordan, Mark McGuire, Paul O'Neill, Mark Prior, George Steinbrenner, Kerry Wood, Yogi Berra, Nolan Ryan, Cal Ripken, Don Mattingly, Derek Jeter, Reggie Jackson, Barbara Sinatra, Diana Munson, Eleanor Gehrig, Julia Ruth, Peyton Manning, Mariano Rivera, Ron Turcotte, and Danny Mantle.

He has also painted home plate that was used in the ceremonial first pitch to kick off the 2004 World series. In addition to baseball work, Lopa created the commemorative artwork for three NFL Superbowls and painted live on the sideline of Giants Stadium for the "Manning Bowl" Lopa has also painted live and the Kentucky Derby, one of horse racings elite Triple Crown showdowns.
