Artworks to get you in the mood for the 2021 Tokyo Olympics

The Tokyo Olympics were originally scheduled to wrap up this Sunday, August 9th.

Like every other event in 2020, it's been postponed to 2021, but I feel like there has been so much anticipation building up for these 2 weeks over the past 4 years, that I wanted to take some time and mark this special event.

For me, the Olympics are one of the biggest sources of inspiration, so in this post I'm featuring some of my favourite paintings I've done of Olympic athletes.
