CALABASAS, CA, July 29, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Seeking to attract the avid art collector and the most ardent tennis-crazed fan, Visual Hangups is ready to unveil its new line of magnificent art work with a booth at the upcoming Los Angeles Tennis Open ATP men's event at UCLA July 27-Aug. 2.
"We started Visual Hangups because as tennis enthusiasts we wanted to surround ourselves with stunning art that expressed our passion for the sport," Visual Hangups co-founder Alex Kotichas said. "Posters have little or no aesthetic value, looking more like advertising than art, and sports memorabilia is just too expensive. We couldn't find anything out there elegant enough to hang on the walls of our homes and offices."
Kotichas had seen the world-class photographs taken by his buddy Adam Davis at local pro tennis events and decided to combine their talents to create breathtaking art pieces of professional tennis touring athletes in action, at last filling the demand for gallery-quality art for the tennis world.
The professionally photographed and graphically enhanced mixed media canvases are available in assorted styles and sizes, on gallery stretched and wrapped canvas, filling your walls with action. They're ready to hang, and limited to a series of 500 worldwide.
The pair recently unveiled several new Roger Federer pieces that will be on display and for sale at the LA Open. Because of their love for tennis, both Kotichas and Davis will be donating 50 percent of what they sale at the LA Open to the National Junior Tennis League Los Angeles chapter. NJTL allows financial aid for kids in low-income areas to learn the game of tennis.
By visiting their website at http://www.visualhangups.com, you will find samples of their work, including pieces of Rafael Nadal, Fernando Gonzalez, Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Ana Ivanovic.
Visual Hangups offers customized art of your favorite athletic photos. By simply calling their offices, you can get all the details that will lead to turning your photo into a graphic piece of artwork that will thrill you visually.
"These are not 'your picture here' templates," Davis said. "These are 100 percent original creations that are truly one of a kind."
