Nigel Cox



One thing I’ve always objected to with hyper-realist painters is their frequently banal subject matter. “Hey, I’m going to spend six years painting a perfectly accurate, 18 foot banana.” While that may have some appeal to the fetishists in the crowd, the rest of us are going, “WTF wi’ de big banana, mon?”

Thank god for realist artists like Mr. Cox (who likely, based on his name alone, also appeals to the fetishists). You can’t beat a great subject, I say.
