Pic of the day: Chris Hoy by Lee Jones

Chris Hoy by Lee Jones

I found this a while back on Terence’s blog but it is © Lee Jones. You can buy limited edition prints or posters of the artwork at Lee’s website- click the image to go there.

It’s part of his Beyond Human series of sporting portraits: A series of hyper-real paintings, portraying elite athletes as superhuman beings, endorsed with the creative input of each sportsperson, the athlete is perceived as a machine so perfectly engineered they become ‘Beyond Human’.
