Roger Federer Is Art In Warp Speed

In late June, French "action painter" Jean-Pierre Blanchard completed a Roger Federer portrait in just four minutes. The piece was bought for 16,000 Swiss Francs, or about $20,000 USD, and because all of the proceeds went to charity, we will refrain from speculating on its actual worth. We've gone ahead and sped up the four-minute video to better match your attention span for the potent mixture of art, tennis, and speed-painting. Caution: Chipmunkesque string music ahead.
