Sculptural artist Michael Kalish is known for his ability to repurpose objects such as license plates into masterpiece tributes of pop icons like James Dean and the Beatles. His latest project that has been three years in the making is reALIze, a 3D installation of boxing legend Muhammad Ali. The inspiration for reALIze came when Muhammad and Lonnie Ali saw Kalish’s art on a show about pop-art license plates.  The couple liked his art so much, they asked Kalish to design something on Muhammad’s behalf. 

Here we have it, a monument made from 1300 boxing speed bags hanging from a cumulative 5 miles of stainless steel cable and 2 miles of aluminum tubing that stands 22 feet high. Kalish worked with architectural firm Oyler Wu to design reALIze and calls the project an opportunity of a lifetime. reALIze will be shown live in Nokia Plaza, Los Angeles this March 25, 2011 and will be moved around to different locations so that others who can’t make it to Los Angeles may have a chance to see the cerebral work. Take a look at the photos and video below and visit Michael Kalish online for more of his art – HERE.
