Former Steelers RB Baron Batch Paints Very Colorful Troy Polamalu Portrait

Many of you are well aware that former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Baron Batch is now a full-time artist. One of his latest paintings is of his former Steelers teammate Troy Polamalu and he recently released a time-lapsed video of the creation of it. The entire video is four and a half minutes long and takes you from start to finish.

You can see Batch’s new art website right here.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I’ve always liked Baron. Wished he was able to carry his momentum from his rookie year.

    That’s AWESOME!!!
    He couldn’t do it on the field but he can do it on canvas! Another stamp of how special this family is! I love that even though a player can’t crack the roster, he still gets to be influenced by what makes us great.
    Now he gets the chance to tell our story in a different medium!

    What an epic painting. Wish BB could have stuck around longer.

    Shame he didn’t make it with the steelers. He had the smarts and the passion just unfortunate with the knee injury. I’ll always remember him as the guy who stood up Harrison on backs on backers.

  • Matt Manzo

    That’s right!!! That’s a story to tell the grand kids!

  • SFIC

    Me too. I totally agree Unfurious. Even though I wish you would switch back to the “clockwork orange” avatar. :-)

    How much for the painting?

  • CW

    Shame that knee injury probably ended any shot he had with the Steelers.

    I think it would be great if Batch became the official artist of the Steelers. The guy is reeking in talent

  • steeltown

    That’s awesome! Very talented kid, very passionate, very humble. I think he was meant to be an artist.

    Dude has talent. Great painting. Thought he was okay on the field but I guess we had too many backs. Liked him at a 3rd option to block.

    lol..I’ll save it for special occasions. I started to feel that maybe it misrepresented my demeanor after Cam Thomas’s mom yelled at me.

  • SFIC

    Well……ok……I guess
