Desmond Mason – The Multi-Talented Artist
Desmond Mason has always been an artist. In the years after Vince Carter’s memorable dunk contest win, the Seattle Aerial Artist gave the world some underrated dunk contest performances while becoming the first Sonic to ever win the event (Shawn Kemp failed 4 times) in 2001. He was later traded along with Gary Payton to the Bucks where Mason put up some of the best stats of his career. He bounced around to a few teams after the Bucks while still occasionally showing off his bounce and still doing some artistic things on the side.
For example, recording a rap video about the Hornets called “We Dem Hornets.”
So what is the artist doing now in his post NBA days? He’s putting that art degree to work and working as a painting artist with his own Art Show.
I like the art that Mason is doing now but this is beautiful art to me.
