A couple years ago, Pablo Picasso’s Les Femmes d’Alger sold for a record $179.4 million and none of the women pictured in the famous asbstract painting could come close to dunking a basketball.

Fortunately, for those of us less well-heeled than Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani (aka “the man who bought London”), prints of Simpson’s striking illustrations start at just $20.

The samples of his work shown below represent a who’s who of pro basketball including past MVP winners LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Will a Joel Embiid print be forthcoming?
