“Fighters”, paintings by David T. Cho. (Showing at The Cheaper Show!)
Really amazingly done. I tried the same thing, painting proboxers and wrestlers in a simular way he is doing, but totally failed,
it was pretty difficult to not make them look cheap and pretentious for me, but this guy really turned that idea in something really good. I’m jealous.
Amateur d’art et de combats, je dirais : Tyson, Silva, Sakuraba, Minotauro :)
is that 3rd one down Sakuraba?
he’s Minho Choi, won gold medal for 68kg judo in Beijing olympic with great performance.
Ah! Ok :)
can you PLEASE do Shogun!
the way the paint is applied to these is perfect for the boxing subject matter. dope.
what type of pint was used?
David Cho is an amazing artist, i haven’t seen him use his technical skills like this before.. everyone who has never heard of him needs to look up his past and this work will make much more sense
nt david choe is it?
very cool… love it
wow. these are so raw, so genuine.
ow I see… only GOOD comment is published..?!
Or not… hmm?!
anyway I was wondering why everyone tries to paint like simon birch, jenny Saville, Philippe Pasqua, Nick Lepard, …?? Resulting in a complete loss of identity!! Or am I missing something here?
love this work. loose, planar analysis, great brushwork textures, awesome take on portraits.

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
