Concept

Boxing is a three dimensional painting of a boxing match.

The black outer part reflects the audience of the match who are hidden in the dark.

The square is the ring. The colors of blue and red reflect the corners of the particular boxer

In the middle of the ring you can see the two boxers struggling. However the perspective makes that it's not clear yet who's winning.

 

Background Story

What else can I do with a box was what I thought for a while. Then I watched the game of Mayweather vs Pacquiao and I knew it had to be boxing in a ring.

I've waited a while to draw it as I was trying to figure out how to make the ring. I wanted to make it a round ring first.

I actually found this quite ridiculous in the end, as the boxing ring is usually a square. So I decided to draw two boxes intertwined with each other as if they're fighting. Around it I created an impossible square to symbolize the ring.
