2K FOUNDATIONS

On a December morning, art photographer Shaun Roberts came to an eighty-year-old gymnasium in Oakland to document the making of a basketball court mural. The project would encompass two, 12' x 24'  mixed media paintings on both sides of the floor. These murals would be part of a collaboration with 2K Foundations and NBA star, Damian Lillard. The mission of 2K Foundations would accomplish a total gymnasium renovation of the Boys and Girls Club of West Oakland; a space that has provided a basketball sanctuary for the Oakland community (including a young Bill Russell) for over eight decades.  The following images by Shaun Roberts capture the artist and work in progress.
