aka The Hayemaker
Dollarsandart is proud to announce an artistic collaboration with David “The Hayemaker” Haye the English professional boxer from London and former WBA heavyweight champion. David recently took time out from his busy schedule to meet Dollarsandart founder, Jim Wheat. He is in and out of Dubai ready to get back in the ring whilst preparing to open his own Hayemaker gym in downtown.
Highlights of their meeting captured o below as David signed a boxing glove featuring the $ and the pair signing a $2 bill and an AED 100 note which will be featured in the collaborative piece.
Jim is an artist with a difference, every piece telling a story as he ran David through number 19 of The Money Collection, SPEEDING, a piece born out of heavy traffic fines.
David was amazed at this and how easy it is to pick up speeding fines on the roads of Dubai!
Jim is busy working on the creative concept as Money meets art and boxing in good time for early 2014 when the piece will be revealed and sold at auction at the opening of the Hayemaker gym, downtown Dubai. Jim is based up in what he terms ‘Dollar towers’, his studio opposite downtown, in the shadows on the inspirational Burj Khalifa, downtown Dubai.
Watch this space as the work progresses – no pressure Jim as each piece tells a story! David was hands on giving the suggestion to include the U.A.E flag in the piece of art when he recently visited Jim’s studio :-
You can also see Hayemaker featured in the 2104 Dollarsandart collection The INTERGALACTIC$ :-
Exciting times ahead as ‘ Making Haye while the sunshine’ is a work in progress which will be more than meets the eye! Really feeling part of the Hayemaker team with the regular Monday night circuits at downtown Dubai and a great alignment with a world record attempt for the biggest boxing class in the world:-
Despite us falling short on the day we’re lining it up to have another crack as you’ve got to keep on keeping on & make Haye while the sunshines!
