Welcome to Sports Art Worldwide! My name is John Prince and I'm a sports artist covering Baseball , Football , Ice Hockey , Basketball,... etc . I have been living in Tampa Florida since 2004 but I am originally from London England. I paint useing acrylic on canvas and most of my large Originals take roughly 100 hours each, most of my originals are now signed by the players.I also have a wide range of limited edition canvas prints of most of my art work
My paintings are vibrant and realistic with a unique presentation style. They are designed to appeal to both serious and casual collectors alike. There is a continuity of style that makes every painting clearly identifiable as a “Prince”.

Was honored to be asked once again by Tim Tebows foundation for their CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC APRIL 2013 if I would do an Original painting from the image of Tim praying on August 10th 2012 with the Jets and Cincinnati Bengals players at the Paul Brown Stadium OH with a phrase in the background "DO EVERYTHING FOR THE GLORY OF GOD" I changed a few things to make it my own composition and they were all delighted with the finished product . It went into the Live auction and SOLD for $20,000 . 100 % of the money raised from this Original painting went to Tim's foundation. Before and after the event I spoke with Tim and he was very thankful for all the hours I had put in to the art work and said the painting was " AWESOME "
