    The great Ian Cater

    ian cater2.jpg

    Really knows his way around a brush

    ian cater.jpg

    And his way around a motorcycle. Cafe Racers and the Ace Cafe. Go find him on twitter - @MotorcycleArtUk - I think - as I don't do social media very well

    That's the right twitter account. Just followed. If you don't do twitter, there's some more of his work at https://www.in2motorsports.com/ian-cater-motorcycle-art. Apparently he has a website but it doesn't seem to be active.

    What a cool way to create a memento of your 1st Sturgis adventure, @Bikerman! I might think about doing that with a few of the tee-shirts I've gotten over the years that conjure up great memories.

    Of course, another who has great skill in picking a scene is Tom Fritz. Believe me it's really difficult to block out paintings like this

    tom fritz.jpg

    Lots of Harleys but all sorts

    tom fritz1.jpg

    His hot rods and racers are stunning

    0131.jpg

    Lots to look at https://www.fritzart.com/

    William Fisk, not the 18thC RA one who painted portraits, but the one from Toronto, Canada who paints photorealistic stuff. He does all sorts but his motorcycle studies are wonderful. Oil painted, clever. I like his 'neatness' with everything.

    Find his, not so much, stuff at http://www.williamfisk.ca/motorcycles

    Thanks for all the posts, @Iron, this is a great thread! I’ve got one piece of motorcycle art in my home office at the moment (I tried posting a pic but it’s spoiled by the reflection of me in the glass) and plan to add more post house renovation. Lots of ideas here to ponder.

    I’d have the Fritz red coloured one in my house anytime... but the Fisk ones are next level!

    This is Daniel Simon - he plays with the big boys. I look at but don't normally write home about digital art. But his 3D designs are really out of this world.
    Remember these guys

    881920_619204934762239_419218643_o.jpg

    Yep, Oblivion, Tron etc etc. But back in 2007 he brought out a book called Cosmic Motors. A quite amazing display of his imagination and skills both in 3D art and photography, real girls were integrated with his designs, both were well....the detailing is astounding.

    191610_145591388839648_3899442_o.jpg

    He invented a bike called the Detonator - a brutal V8 6.0 litre street cruiser.

    Worth looking out for his books and a scan down his Facebook thingy
    https://en-gb.facebook.com/cosmicmotors/

    This was his Christmas Card

    This is the amazing Kenji Shibata.
    He did a motorcycle logo for one of his pictures at college and really wasn't interested in motorcycles. Once looking at an actual race machine, to complete the project, he was hooked. Being introduced to a leading Japanese race team's bikes....well he's being doing his art of iconic Japanese racers (even cars) ever since

    We all need one of these on the wall

    And here he is at work

    Just a guy I used to know on the Victory Motorcycle Club. Never actually met him face to face but chatted on the forum.

    Amazing work - all of it, but the Fisk and Cater stuff - incredible. Fisk's "art" is so damned realistic! Like photographs, only more so! Does that make sense?

    Going away from photorealism and to climb into ye olde Kustom Kulture.
    I couldn't really not direct you to the Big Daddy - Ed Roth

    ed-roth-chopper.jpg

    He broke ground with his art in the 60s. It wasn't too dissimilar to today's anti whatever demos, here's him teaming up with Dave Mann and selling posters through Custom Bike magazine showing a bit of politics, tut tut

    ed roth dave mann chicago peace.jpg

    He's well known for his art, custom builds and the iconic Rat Fink. I've been asked to paint his designs on all sorts even including Pilot's Helmets

    Original-BIG-DADDY-ROTH-Biker-art-work.jpg

    4ba3930e623789e94616829481424dab.jpg

    He sort of covered every make of vehicle due to the popular demand but it shows the feeling around triumphs of the day

    2576042971_f5b8ef103a_n.jpg

    Here he is again on Mike Vils' Triumph called "Brute" (The colour scheme not too dissimilar to me old A75 chop)

    Mike-Vils-The-Brute-The-Vintagent-.EdRoth.2-1024x1017.jpg

    Go have a look, Dude, cause his art is still cool, cosmic Brother https://www.ratfink.com/

    I've always like this guy's work but hadn't seen any photos of him, until now. Thanks!

    This is Martin Squires who produces 'sketches' for magazine articles and also for concept work for commissioned builds at Old Empire Motorcycles.

    MSquires_Stock_007_A3_Match_G9_PRINT.jpg

    He does what's called a scrolling sketchbook as shown on the short film The Museum by Tom Rochester when he visits the National Motorcycle Museum.

    MSquires_Stock_034_52TriTBird_C.jpg

    Lots of prints available on his site sketchbooktravels.com

    MSquires_Stock_047_A3_HondaCB750__PRINT.jpg

    He also produces cut-away drawings and lots of stuff on his facebook whatsit, go give it a look :)

    This is Pascal Servies (the e has a little slope over it) from France.
    1950 Speed twin:

    Screenshot 2022-01-24 222701.jpg

    He again, uses the motorcycles as the main theme and allows them to tell their own story. Lovely soft, warm paintings full of patina. I love these. Just look at this old 1929 BSA Sloper:

    Screenshot 2022-01-24 222747.jpg

    He has loads of these for sale, even has HDs.

    What about a Brough Superior:
