Home

I'd like to personally welcome you to my website.  I am an accomplished sports artist with a passion for painting professional athletes, particularly those playing for my hometown black and gold Pittsburgh teams.  I specifically enjoy painting on items of sports memorabilia.  I have done many projects for professional athletes and collectors alike.  Feel free to peruse this site to see exactly what I am talking about.  I am constantly striving to develop my God-given talents in order to make a better life for my family.  I aspire to become on of the best "memorabilia artists" in the business.  Along the way, I have made a promise to myself to help charitable organizations via my artistic creations.  This is my way of "giving back," as I feel that I have been blessed, by the Creator, beyond belief in my life. 

I thank God that my business has become such a positive experience in my life.  Because the charitable requests and commissions from professional athletes and collectors that I have received have become overwhelming, I have been forced to become quite selective with regard to projects.  Please contact me if you would like to inquire about a piece of artwork.  I'll do what I can to help.  I am slowly developing an inventory in my web store on this site.  Check there first to see if there is anything that catches your eye.  You can always find me on facebook and twitter as well.  Just look for Larry Klu.  Many of my new pieces are posted on both social media sites.

This homepage would not be complete without a special thank you to my beautiful wife, Renea, and my special children, Jake, Sarah, and Nicholas.  These important people understand my commitment to achieving my dreams.  You all inspire me.  Thanks also to my parents, Frank and Anne, who have sacrificed so much to make me the person that I am.  Lastly, thank you to my brothers and sisters, particularly Joanie, and my "number one fan," Aunt Pauline, who have given me guidance and support through the years.  I love each and every one of you very much.  Finally, to my brother Frank, contact me when you are ready to start representing me as my marketing director.  The job is yours!!

Have fun looking at my unique artwork and contact me if you like a particular piece in my store or would like to commission me for an upcoming project.  I am no longer doing any type of print work, so each and every project that I create will be a custom; one-of-a kind piece of art.  I would love to hear from you.  Thanks for checking in and God bless!

I was honored to paint on the actual hoop ball used by NBA great, Antawn Jamison, in scoring his 15,000th professional point.  Here's a quote from him on my work:  "Great job with my 15,000 points ball!  Looking forward to working with you on many more projects.  Keep doing what you are doing, you were made for it!"
