About the Artist In the past few years Al Sorenson has launched himself into the upper echelon of sports art. With minimal formal training, he relies on his raw ability to bring his subjects to life. The use of color and how it can create a feeling of excitement and provoke one’s imagination have amazed Al since his childhood. He uses brilliant and explosive colors to capture the mood and draw on a viewer’s emotions to make a strong connection between the art and those viewing it. Whether painting a vintage stadium or one of the game’s greats, Al interjects the excitement he experiences into every masterpiece he creates. From the finest detail to the large strokes of color, some of professional sport’s greatest images have been captured forever on canvas. Mr. Sorenson will appear inside the Baseball Hall of Fame this summer in conjunction with the Cubs v. Padres Hall of Fame game. His paintings are scheduled to appear at the Sports Museum of America in New York, and he’s currently working on a production of Wrigley Field for a US postage stamp.
