The expression of pure joy is the primary idea in painting this image. Bert has a passion for BMX. This young man is jumping his bike with perfect style. This was the second image Bert has painted whose source was Twitter. Mike King tweeted this image as a ‘flashback’ memory of his youth. The painting differs from the original photograph in that it has been extended at the top by a small amount to make for a better composition.

Mike King is a legend in BMX racing. He has competed with a great deal of success as a AA BMX pro and was also the 1993 World Downhill champion in mountain biking.
