It’s springtime 1950 in Brooklyn, NY, and several neighborhood kids gather to play a game of stickball in a vacant lot between two tenements. The Brooklyn Bridge looms in the background while rows of wet laundry hang overhead. Donning an oversized Brooklyn Dodgers cap, an eager young batter conjures the spirit of his hero Jackie Robinson as he tees up and tightens his grip on an old shortened broomstick amid heckling opponents and curious onlookers.

Kadir NelsonKadir Nelson began drawing at the age of three, displaying artistic acumen before he could write or spell. “I have always been an artist,” Nelson explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” At age eleven, Kadir Nelson was apprenticed by his uncle Michael Morris, an artist and art instructor. “My uncle gave me my foundation in art,” says the artist. Kadir Nelson experimented with several different media and later began painting in oils at the age of sixteen under the encouragement and tutelage of both his uncle and high school art teacher. He began entering his paintings in art competitions and ultimately won an art scholarship to study at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Upon graduating with honors, Kadir Nelson began his professional career as an artist, publishing his work and receiving commissions from publishers and production studios such as Dreamworks, Sports Illustrated, Coca-Cola, The New York Times and Major League Baseball, among others.
