Is there a bigger professional wrestling fan in the world than Deatra Colbert? Probably not.
Deatra shows her fandom of sports entertainment primarily on paper, though she works across numerous media. Her drawings obsessively detail the goings-on of her favorite athlete/actors. Buried within the dense schemata of her works are names, phrases and important dates from various match-ups.
And like professional wrestling, Deatra’s works are a lively celebration of the continuing battle between good and evil.Learn more about Deatra’s nonprofit NIAD Art Center here.
