Adam Exelbierd Shows Love For Memphis And Its Grizzlies: Double Tapped
Adam Exelbierd, or @artbyexelbierd, brings new meaning to the word “superfan” with his speckled portraits of Memphis‘ treasures, past and present, including basketball players like Mario Chalmers, Mike Conley, and the iconic Penny Hardaway.
In a standout piece, Exelbierd blends the Memphis Grizzlies’ Fab Four with Beatlemania, recreating a Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band photo. His work has not only garnered recognition from the players themselves, but also local charities to which he donates his art.
Check out more of his pieces and adventures as a #GrizzNation Claw Crew member on Instagram.
