Toller Cranston was a figure skater that changed how the world perceived mens figure skating. Before Toller showed off his artistic bodily movement, men figure skaters were very masculine on the ice. After Cranston introduced his unique style, he became an icon for centuries. Along with his passion of figure skating, he was extremely passionate about art. He created 20, 000 paintings and drawings in his lifetime. Although he has passed, his art continues to inspire and impact the lives of many artists and/or viewers.
