The one-off ink drawing of Ryu has an estimated value of between $8,800 and $12,650, is 5ft x 3ft an was inspired by the artist’s love of the game.
“For the past 18 years I have been playing Street Fighter in all its guises and versions,” says White. “For me and millions of others it’s more than just a videogame, it’s a total obsession and way of life.
“Something more akin to the complex structure of chess, every match is different and every second offers chances and possibilities, risks and drama. That’s why I play.”
