Jimmy C's 'Usain Bolt' Print

After much anticipation, with many people asking the artist: "Are you going to do it as a print?", street artist Jimmy C has decided to release his iconic 'Bolt' portrait as a fabulous high-quality print.

The portrait of double Olympic sprint champion was created to celebrate the opening of London 2012 Olympic games, and 50 years of Jamaican Independence. Initially painted as a large scale portrait on the wall of an East London car park, its distinctive 'scribble style' was developed by the artist to reflect the inherent energy and vibrancy of Bolt's personality, as well as visually communicate a sense of speed. The piece was quickly picked up by Reuters, BBC, Fox, Sky, CNN, and many other major news channels - quickly becoming one of the most talked about images throughout London 2012.

Jimmy added: "I really don't know how long the mural will last; after many threats from the local authorities to paint over it... so importantly, a print will allow people to enjoy the painting for years to come."

The print itself measures an impressive 56cm x 44.5cm, on textured Minuet Smooth White paper, signed by the artist.

Priced at £40.00
