Super proud to finally unveil my official collaboration with Ducati 🔥
I created this one of a kind Panigale V4s “art bike” by completely stripping the original motorcycle 🏍 and repainting everything in a metallic Nardo grey with black and fluorescent green accents.
All the art you see on the sides are not stickers.. everything is painted and covered with a clear coat for protection 🎨
For the wheels I chose a special satin gold finish and the rest of the bike is filled with carbon parts an Arkapovic exhaust and I just had to ad the open clutch ✌🏼
Thank you to @ducatibenelux for trusting me with your flagship motorcycle 🙏🏽
And a special thanks to @customdreams for helping me with all the paintwork🤍
Did you know 99.99% of all artists don’t do their own bronze casting? And we really understand why.. it’s heavy, hot and dangerous.. but also extremely rewarding and beautiful to see an artwork come to life in front of your eyes.
Here you can see my father and “the boys” taking the hot ceramic shells 🐚 out of the oven and prepping and pouring the molten bronze 🔥
“Reflections of Truth” is a series of 3 sculptures I created to illustrate the journey of succes..
1. the first sculpture illustrates the craving for wealth and succes
2. The second sculpture shown in this photograph shows the burden of wealth and succes.
The character is walking around with a heavy large diamond on it’s neck
3. The third sculpture is laying flat on the ground , squashed by the ever growing diamond.
It poses the question.. when is enough actually enough?
At what point is a person happy..? And do we need all this in our lives? Or did we start something not knowing what it would end up being ..? 🏹
99% of artist don’t do their own bronze casting “in house” .. and I understand why.
It’s a very labour intensive undertaking and you really need to build a dedicated team to help you.
As you can see here it’s a delicate and well coordinated “dance” with a pot of molten metal that could go wrong in many different ways if you are not focused.
But it’s also one of the most beautiful and satisfying parts of making ar for me 🙏🏼
