"I was so impressed with Dave Hobrecht's talent and unique approach to his craft. I'm proud, privileged, honored and humbled to be a part of this amazing team," Walton says in a statement from Hobrecht Sports Art, whose paintings have been commissioned and purchased by collectors, galleries and sports fans across the country.
The company collaborates with universities, professional franchises and sports organizations to commission paintings and limited-edition works of sports legends, current stars, historic moments and venues. But, unlike many other artists, Hobrecht also works with athletes or surviving families to include everyone in the commissioning process.
Each year the artist creates 36 new original paintings and limited edition prints for his collection.
"I'm blessed to have the opportunity to utilize my love of art and sports to collaborate with so many amazing athletes," Hobrecht says in the same statement. "Each painting has a special meaning to me knowing that I can highlight memorable moments of our favorite sports heroes."
