Dennis Matson traveled nearly twice the circumference of the Earth on an 1199, documenting his travels through 25+ countries, 119 states and provinces, and over 600 cities. No one has spent more time or ridden greater distances on an 1199 than he has (which includes covering over 1000 miles in one day). His travels eventually caught the attention of Ducati's CEO, who personally invited him to test ride the R at COTA with Nicky Hayden and Ben Spies. His painting of the R was inspired by this incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience. (Ducati produced a video of him that can be found on their YouTube channel.)
The artist of this piece, Dennis Matson (AKA AntiHero), traveled nearly twice the circumference of the Earth on an 1199, documenting his travels through 25+ countries, 119 states and provinces, and over 600 cities. No one has spent more time or ridden greater distances on an 1199 than he has and his passion is evident in his artistic style. His bold adventures, incredible photographs and the literary-quality of his writings elevated him to legendary status within the motorcycle community and eventually caught the eye of Ducati's CEO, who personally invited him to test ride a Panigale R at COTA with Nicky Hayden and Ben Spies. (A video Ducati produced of him can be found on Ducati's YouTube channel.)
If that wasn't enough, Gianandrea Fabbro, who designed the Panigale, owns Dennis' artwork and sent signed Panigale-related artwork back to him in return.
Prints of the original Acrylic-on-Canvas painting are available as banners, on canvas or on premier heavyweight paper.
Each hand-signed Giclee print is individually printed by the artist on Epson Canvas utilizing professional imaging technologies and methods. The meticulous reproduction process and the use of archival pigments and museum-quality canvas (estimated to last 400+ years) produces a stunning print frequently mistaken for an original.
Signed poster prints are printed on Kodak Professional Endura Premier paper for exceptionally sharp and precise colors, bold, rich blacks and clean, crisp whites. Poster prints will last 100 years in a typical home display and 200 years in dark storage.
Flexible vinyl banners are fade-resistant, tear-resistant and are built to withstand variable weather conditions (which should make them perfect for any garage). Additional processing time may apply.
Shipping and Handling:
Artwork will arrive rolled in a durable shipping cylinder or shipped flat depending on size. Most prints are ready to ship, but larger sizes may require additional processing time.
