Robi Walters X Usain Bolt

Last night, Robi Walters gave Usain Bolt a farewell gift as he prepared to leave the UK, following his last ever race at World Champions. 

During the 2012 Olympics in London, Robi Walters created a collage in homage to his idol, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt. The piece stands 6ft tall, featuring the silhouette of Bolt in his iconic celebratory pose. With the help from his friend and studio hand Jack Mann, the piece took 6 weeks to finalise. Over the past 5 years, ’Bolt’ traveled to each of the last 6 Soho studios that Robi has worked in.

Finally, Robi had the chance to meet Bolt thanks to friend and nightclub owner Ryan Bish. The pair met at glamorous nightclub Cirque le Soir in Soho, where Robi had the collage waiting. Upon seeing it, after a few photos and a mention to Bolt's 4.5m followers on Snapchat, Usain Bolt thanked Robi Walters and assured him that he was looking forward to taking it back with him to his home in Jamaica.
