WUCF TV’s ARTISODES showcases the art of sports

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

This week on WUCF TV’s Artisodes, meet an award-winning artist who combines his passions to recreate some of sports most memorable moments.

David Blondell has focused his work on two of his favorite teams, the University of Kentucky and the Orlando Magic.

“I’ve been a big basketball fan, certainly growing up in Kentucky, you have to,” said Blondell.  “But I’m a passionate fan of that and that translated to the Magic and that started a 10-year run where I was a featured artist for Orlando Magazine.”

Over the years, Blondell has captured some of the biggest moments and icons in the sports world.  See how he creates his masterpieces, on this week’s Artisodes.

WUCF’s Artisodes airs each Thursday on WUCF TV at 8 p.m.
