Krazy Horse Stages 'Flight Meets Bike' Art Exhibition
The exhibition opens to the public on 8 February 2014 and will run for six weeks. Among the pieces on show will be: ‘Gott the Fokker, Cold War Warrior, The Red One, Dreamland, Deep Spirit, The Aerobot Family, The Come Back and Vulcan on Night Sortie by acclaimed leading modern aviation artist David Bent.
Hundreds of people are expected to attend the free exhibition to see a collection of the powerful imaginative paintings by David combined with iconic global motorcycles and three-wheeler street-machines with paintwork by Ty Lawer, from Pageant Paintwork, an internationally-renowned custom paint specialist. Motorcycle industry representatives will be travelling to Bury St Edmunds from all over the UK and from international locations including Japan, the US, Sweden and Switzerland.
The retail and leisure outlet for lovers of motorcycles and contemporary clothing and culture also features the all-new Rockers Café, a collaboration with the world-famous Ace Café, London.
Speaking about the first Krazy Horse art meets bikes exhibition event, MD Paul Beamish said: ‘This exhibition combines motorcycle engineering and art with the very best of aviation design and engineering as depicted by supremely-talented David Bent.’
‘Our motorcycle venue is the perfect exhibition space for both bikes and works of art. It is less formal than many ‘host’ galleries and it has an atmosphere like no other. We think it will work exceptionally well and look forward to welcoming people who love motorcycles, the world of aviation, custom painting and art for art’s sake.’
‘The art exhibition venue is an official outlet for Morgan Three Wheelers, Indian Kiwi Motorcycles, Zero Engineering ‘Samurai Chopper bikes and handcrafted Krazy Horse dream custom motorcycles. This will be the first event of its kind for us – but we hope to stage more events featuring engineering and the arts during 2014.’
Featured artist David Bent added, ‘Flight Meets Bike is a great concept and I’m delighted to be involved. This collaborative exhibition will excite and interest anyone who loves creativity, innovation and speed.’
