AO Selected to by the KC Chiefs to Create: The “Okoye”

In November of 2021 AO received a call from Chiefs Creative Services & Brand Manager, Jordan Giesler, and was informed that he was selectyed by the Chiefs Kingdom, via Twitter, as one of the artist to create a game poster for the Kansas City Chiefs Kingdom Poster Series

The Kingdom Poster Series is a Chiefs tradition in which they select artists (local and across the country) to design unique posters that highlight each game matchup the Chiefs face during the season. Each poster is limited-edition (500) and uniquely numbered with 100% of the net proceeds donated to local charities that help positively impact the Kansas City community.

Poster Print Created for Dec. 26 Game vs. Steelers – Featuring Christian Okoye

Flattered and excited, AO and Jordan took a few days to hammer out a few details.  They eventually finalize that AO’s design will be focused around the Chiefs Hall of Fame running back Christian Okoye.

The 24×36 mixed media on canvas features the legendary running back pushing forward gaining yardage for the Chiefs with an AO trademark textured, raw and gritty background.

AO’s print of of the “Okoye” will highlight the December 26, 2021 game vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.
