Viking Cycle Paint Art

vikingcycleart11.comvikingcycleart2.comDuring motorcycle events Custom builders are, like you, strolling the vendor’s alleys hoping to discover a new part or a new talent. 3 weeks ago I was a guest at the “Art Of The Chopper” exhibition party and discovered a local painter who surprised me because his range of  “know how” is wider than most painters. As fabulous some painters may be, my experience is that they usually excel at one technique much better than the others, whatever it may be, mural, graphics, pinstripping, lettering etc. Since the mot frequent question I get from non-clients is by far “can you recommend a painter?”, I will from time to time publish a short intro to a painter I know. As for today the painter is Dwane Olson, based in Ocala, FL (yes, he works for clients all over the country) is a recipient of the coveted House Of Kolor Painter Of The Year 2006, and can handle all the body work paint preparation (molding, priming) if requested.

    Looks like a knock-off of the a Santana album cover:
    Check out “Abraxas” a Desert Island Discs.

    I was also there at the Art of the Chopper show in Ocala , and like Cyril was really impressed with Dwane and his folks not just as artist but great assets to this industry ,

    Not quite the “Abraxas” girl… but the inspiration may have been there. While there’s no denying Dwane’s talent, it still amazes me just what people will put on their “choppers”! On a side note, I recently received the “Art of the Chopper” book. While a nice book quality-wise, it has about as much to do with choppers as a Ford Festiva Haynes manual. Should be called “Art of the Custom Motorcycle”. IMHO, with the exception of Chica, Exile, Ness and small handful of others… it’s 250 pages of swoopy, soft-tail, billet crap!
