About the Artist, Theo Howard
I am an artist and painter, and I love brazilian jiu jitsu, judo, and grappling sports! Being an artist has been tough, and I had to do a couple of other jobs sometimes to make ends meet. I started graduate school for occupational therapy at about the time I was introduced to Brazilian jiu jitsu (2012), and in hindsight, I should have dropped out of graduate school instead of BJJ back then, I would have been much happier. After graduate school, I switched to web development because graduate school was extremely expensive and art had never made me much money. The first opportunity to build a professional website was with the BJJ school that I had started with, and BJJ was like therapy for me to recover from graduate school. Getting back into the BJJ community was so joyful, I could go on for days about the benefits of BJJ.
As my passion for BJJ recovered, and I was working closely with bjj gyms to develop their websites, I decided to make BJJ artwork to sell online and to people that I know. In January 2017, I set a goal to make set ten BJJ and judo paintings for this website. I nearly accomplished my goal, and started selling prints of the work that I had finished. Almost immediately, I started getting commissions original BJJ artwork from the local BJJ community!
I hope that this artwork can inspire others who love BJJ, jiu jitsu, and judo; I also hope to add muay thai, kick-boxing, wrestling, and yoga to the painting collection as well soon!
