Did this Ducati have to die?
I’d be the first person to say that Ducati motorcycles in general are art. Of course, as we have all heard, “Art is in the eye of the beholder” but this year at Art Basel, Miami, one of the worlds largest gathering of art lovers that takes place yearly, I came across two Ducati art projects within blocks of each other. They could not have been more different.

What do YOU think???
Brooklyn-based bodypainter Trina Merry's latest work just looks like a woman riding a red motorcycle.
At first glance, Trina Merry's latest work just looks like a woman riding a red motorcycle.
But upon closer inspection, it becomes clear to see that the vehicle itself is made up of five more nude models in body paint, contorting themselves to form the exact replica of a Ducati motorbike.
The result is an incredibly realistic human sculpture, part of the Brooklyn-based bodypainter's Human Motorcycle Project.
Still laughing at the comments on the story. One guy say's "I would like to be run over by it 15 times"
If you've ever maligned drawing as mere practice (sketchbook scribbles, tentative pencil scratches), a trip to City Ice Arts this month should set you straight....

What artistic tribute to Ducati would be complete without a rendering of Nicky Hayden on the Desmosedici GP13. I started this painting just after Laguna Seca when it was announced that Nicky would be leaving the team. I, like so many others, will truly miss seeing Nicky on the red bikes. He has been a tremendous asset to the team and ambassador to the brand. All while coaxing a ferocious bike that was not wanting to cooperate on the race track. For the Ducatisti, Nicky will always be a hero.

Nudes, bodypaint and yoga have come together to create some intriguing "human motorcycles".
The "motorcycles" will tour with the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows in the US and are a culmination of collaboration between body paint artist Trina Merry and Ryan Berman.
The net result was three "human motorcycles" - a Ducati sport bike, a KTM dirt bike and a Harley-Davidson cruiser - which were created over three days.

Ducati 848 Clutch Lever by Dave McBride
I shoot using an LG Voyager cell phone, creating 1600×1200 jpg’s, which I edit in Photoshop. While shooting, my objective is to see the object in a new way. The cell phone camera facilitates this in being easy to place in locations not available to most cameras.
As the cell phone image is not particularly rich to start with, I create multiple layers of the same image to bring out the highlights and darks, as well as to reinforce the mid-tones, color saturation and the structure of the subject. I use a variety of filters on various layers to create a more painterly effect. I’m a huge fan of impressionist work, and I love bringing out the colors that make up what we see. I am constantly experimenting with different cameras and approaches to editing the image.
Perfect for the grease monkey in your life.
These heavy-duty bookends are made of motocycle transmission gears. Positioned and welded to perfection, they add instant style to any decor. The edgy steampunk element makes them very of-the-moment while retaining an elegant and timeless air.
Dimensions are: 6" tall, 3 1/2" wide, and the base is 4" long.
This is a high quality Giclee Print of Guenevere Schwien's "Nine Foot Ducati" which is a 9ft tall and 6ft wide oil painting she did as a commission in the summer of 2010.
Featured in Nov 2011 Houston House and Home.
