Friday's Rugby Face is an original art project by Ronnie which features internationally capped men's rugby players (chosen from his followers' suggestions each week).
Original mixed media artwork by Ronnie McInnes No.6 - Siya Kolisi © 2020.
Friday's Rugby Face is about celebrating some important players, big characters or inspirations from men's rugby union. Partly influenced by Pop Surrealism, I usually tie something into the narrative that has been inspired by video games.

The artwork was made by using a combination of long exposure (light painting) photography and digital art techniques. This is the sixth piece from the project and features South African rugby player - Blindside Flanker - Siya Kolisi.
The first black captain for the national team. Siya steered his rainbow country to win a world cup and united his nation in the process. So I decided to do some colourful, rainbow-like light painting photography for the background.
My artwork presents Siya doing one of his strong carries and performing a handoff to an opposition player who is trying to rip the ball.
Siya's nickname is The Bear and, as a result, I wanted to get some inspiration from a video game that features a bear. I chose the beat em' up Tekken, specifically the bear Kuma. As Kuma fights in the game sparks fly and he seems to glow with a kind of fire. So, I did my version of that.
