A photorealist painting of Mike King, the BMX champion when he was boy
I started to ride BMX when I first started to paint; at 27 years old. I bought all the magazines and Mike King was a professional BMX racer who was spending more of his time racing downhill mountain bikes. To say he was/is a legend would be putting it mildly.
Materials: Acrylic on MDF board.

The story behind Mike King
Photorealist painting of a young Mike King jumping his BMX bike. Mike King was an incredible BMX racer and he later went on to do very well at downhill mountain biking. He posted a photograph of when he was a young boy jumping his bike at the local dirt jumps on twitter. I took that image added a section to the top to create a better composition and then painted it.
Here’s Mike’s wikipedia page.
