    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.

    the way the paint is applied to these is perfect for the boxing subject matter. dope.

    what type of pint was used?

  • Nate

    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

  • glenn

    ow I see… only GOOD comment is published..?!
    not cool

  • glenn

    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?
