To commemorate the November 16 game against the Devils, Joe Iurato, a New Jersey-based artist working in New York, seized on a rivalry between two of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.

 

“Destined” reflects the historical struggle between Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy by projecting us to its imaginary origin. Two children promised to the highest honors wear the colors of their teams and fight fiercely for supremacy. The fleur-de-lis and the two brothers who served as models for the photograph recall the shared origins and personal journey of the two legends.

 

Signed and numbered by the artist, the fourth artwork resulting from this collaboration stands at the frontier of simplicity and photorealism. Its clear and illustrative aesthetic highlights the innocence of the innate competitiveness that earned the two goalies a place in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
