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 artwork back to him in return.
Each Giclee print is individually produced by the artist utilizing professional imaging technologies and methods. As a result of meticulous standards, the Giclee retains a beautiful painterly quality that preserves minute and subtle tints, blends and detail of the artist's original acrylic-on-canvas painting. The meticulous reproduction process and the use of archival pigments and museum-quality canvas produce a stunning piece that collectors and admirers often mistake for an original.
Note: I have two variants for this print: the 1199 and the 1299 (both S models).
