BRING THE PAIN BY DUBELYOO

 
 
Quote: "I was called "Rembrandt" Hope in my boxing days because I spent so much time on the canvas." -Bob Hope
 
 
To the average onlooker combat sports like boxing and MMA can appear like the most brutal, chaotic competition that athletes could engage in. There is something inside of people who fight that despite the potential risk of bodily harm they continue to step in the ring, in the cage or on the mat. The willingness to accept and deliver physical punishment in pursuit technical mastery sets them far apart from the average person. Over the course of 5 years, I have the pleasure of meeting and training with a variety of fighters. After several elbows, knees, jabs and chokes, I couldn't help but admire their approach to training and their passion for what they do.  My time in the dojo began to surface in my art and I began to see some parallels between what make a successful fighter and what makes a successful artist. These experiences lead me to create the series of artwork the began the Bring The Pain installation.
