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.
