Colorado artist featured in NFL Films

The latest NFL documentary, set to air Friday, will feature a Colorado artist.

Known for his murals all across Longmont and the Denver metro area, artist Gamma Acosta has painted several pieces depicting Broncos players.

Combine his talents with avid art lover/former Jets great Curtis Martin and an innovative interview was born.

"For "Curtis Martin: A Football Life," we incorporated his love of art into the backbone of the narrative of the film," NFL Films said in a Facebook post. "While we interviewed Curtis, artist Gamma Acosta was directly behind Curtis, simultaneously painting scenes from Curtis' life."

NFL Films describes Gamma's style as pop culture with a photo-realism element. They say the painting was done over the course of 12 hours, spanning two days.
