Philippines-base art trope http://collision-theory.com” target=”_blank”>CollisionTheory returns to the scene with aggression, quite literally, over the weekend.   Commissioned by http://nike.com” target=”_blank”>Nike and http://nike.com.ph/” target=”_blank”>Nike Philippines the man behind CollisionTheory, http://ajdimarucot.com” target=”_blank”>AJ Dimarucot, created a portrait of the Filipino national hero, boxer http://mannypacquiao.ph” target=”_blank”>Manny Pacquiao.   The larger than life illustration served as the boxing ring mat for an invite-only viewing party hosted by Nike for the http://freshnessmag.com/2009/11/15/manny-pacquiao-vs-miguel-cotto-manny-pacquiao-wins/” target=”_blank”>Pacquiao vs. Cotto match Saturday evening.   A collage of symbolism in Pacquiao’s life, from the Philippine Eagle, personal stats, to championship belts and trainer Freddie Roach, all formed a resemblance of Pacquiao.   The canvas then went through a top-down splatter application in blood red paint.   Making the installation a hallowing effigy of the World Champion.
