Round 3: MotoGP COTA, Dovizioso - The Agony of Defeat


As part of his 2016 MotoGP series of paintings, the artist tried to capture the most meaningful element of each race. At Circuit of the Americas, Dovizioso's chances of a championship were over. He'd finished the first race in 2nd place, but then was taken out on the last lap on his second race in Argentina by Iannone. Just a week later, in Austin, Pedrosa crashed into him while battling for the podium. This scene captures the moment when he realizes a championship victory would take a miracle.

Due to the shallow depth of field and stark colors, both the print and the original painting have a hyper-realistic effect that appears like an actual photograph.

Prints of the original painting are available as vinyl 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.

Heavyweight Paper:
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.
