Painting Jesse Owens - the athlete who defied Hitler

Painting of Jesse Owens Berlin Olympics 1939 athlete and champion. Explosive contemporary sports artwork by David Roman Art

 

Created this painting of Olympic athlete Jesse Owens this week, celebrating a sports icon who made history at the 1939 Berlin Olympics.

 

Hitler wanted to use the Olympics for propaganda and proving that the Aryan race was superior to everyone... but Jesse proved that wrong multiple times in a span of 45 minutes.

 

Jesse managed to break or equal nine Olympic records and also set three world records.
