The Oil & Ink Vintage Motorbike Print Exposition is a traveling art exhibition that came to town Thursday night, the same night as Rumble on the Deck in Stillwater. After hanging out in Stillwater for a bit, I swung by Create in the Waterbury building to check out some moto-art.
There was a small but diverse mix of bikes out front including this old shovelhead.
Inside the prints were framed and lined two of the walls (about 20 prints in total). Music was playing and beer & wine were available. Each print was available for sale for $100 each (unframed). There were some that I really liked, but not enough to impulsively shell out $100 with no practical means of carrying it home. I don't have a lot of suitable wall space anyway.
I didn't notice these two guys when taking the photo above, but their reflection in this print makes me smile.
The one I really liked was a Vincent that appeared to have been done in watercolor. Out of respect to the artists, I didn't take any direct photos of the artwork (trust me that I really wanted to). After a little research at home, I learned the original painting of the Vincent was done by Makoto Endo, who paints in ink with chopsticks. His website has lots of motorcycle paintings done in the same style. They are really cool - check it out.
