There are a number of photos that might come to mind when you think about photos of BMX, but there’s one that pretty much all of you probably have burned into your mind. The insane photo of Mat Hoffman blasting the huge quaterpipe he built back in 1994 in his quest for the highest air. We have seen this photo countless times, and every time it never fails to blow our mind and keep up staring at it. As many of you know, Mat has taken up painting as a hobby of his the past few years and he’s actually really good. After getting a bunch of requests, he decided to paint the legendary photo of himself. Below you can find a timelapse video of him piecing this amazing painting together, making it looks damn close to the original photo. Take a peek!
Think that air is crazy, watch Mat set the high air record back in 2015!
Here’s a photo of the final painting…
