Arnie creates a BUZZ....
5 June 2015
This is an email I received from Victor earlier this week:
Hi Paul, Something amazing happened! I made an oil painting for Arnold Shwarzenegger`s VIP room in Arnold Classic Brazil 2015. He liked it and took it to Los Angeles!! It was a wonderful moment! The painting is about the time when he was training for Mr Olympia contest in 1977. I made a long research finding facts of his life. That crowd in the scene are old friends of Arnold`s. One of them is very special. It`s the Italian Franco Columbu. They`re best friends until this date. Arnold is serving him food in the painting. Arnold gently caressed Columbu's face in the painting as you`ll see in the 15th picture. It happened in Rio last Saturday, 30th May 2015.
Fantastic work Victor and well researched. I sense a new career path developing for Victor and thank you Mr Schwarzenegger from all your biggest fans at Beehive ;)
Working with Beehive Illustration has been a dream. One of the best parts of creating the Shinoy and the Chaos Crew series has been seeing the staggering artwork develop into stunning final pieces that have always exceeded my hopes and expectations. It has been a huge pleasure working with such a talented, professional and friendly team.Chris Callaghan - Author of Harper Collins Shinoy and the Chaos Crew
