The art of 29 year old Italian boxer and painter Omar Hassan, who stretches his canvases over cardboard to prevent them tearing as he pounds them with paint-dipped boxing gloves. The ‘paintings’ – part of a series he calls ‘Breaking Through Milano’ – sell for between €8,000 and €40,000 apiece, which he calls “a great satisfaction, but not the goal”.
Classy glove display. Newbridge.
