This painting of Arlen Ness was created for Michael Lichter’s 2018 “Passion Built” bike show in Sturgis.
Arlen in my opinion is the original King of custom bike building. He had a strong influence on me growing up, and most everyone in the custom bike industry.
Having this painting shown alongside the Willie G. Davidson painting at Michael’s show created a nice focal point to the room of 2D and 3D rolling art. More importantly, it gave honor to two of the most creative pioneers of motorcycles as art!
