“Pixel Muhammad Alì” is one of the four portraits depicting sports icons of the 20th century. These portraits are conceived as artistic representations of a particular cognitive skill: face recognition.

The choice to depict these athletes stems from their recognizability and, above all, their impact beyond the realm of sports.

The decision to portray Muhammad Ali was made as a tribute to the greatest sportsman of all time and to honor the man who became a symbol of the fight for civil rights.

The artwork Pixel Muhammad Alì consists of 3,723 hand-colored pixels.
