Las Vegas BikeFest To Feature Five Artists This Year.
Las Vegas BikeFest, the home of the most artistic motorcycle builds of the year — Artistry In Iron — is taking art to another level in 2013. In a 20×60 foot area inside the Cashman Center just next to the Artistry In Iron builders, there will be an art collection of five motorcycle artists who will also be on site painting live. That’s right, some of the names you’ve been continuously hearing from the scene will be creating live art right in front of your eyes.
The lineup starts off with a name that you all know from his monthly column in The Horse Backstreet Choppers magazine: George Frizell. George The Painter, as he is internationally known, will be working on his art and signing his new book published this year by Wolfgang Publications titled, George The Painter – A Bathroom Reader. www.americanmotherfucker.com
Second on the list is Kayla Koeune of Inferno Studios. Kayla has an impressive body of work in and around the motorcycle culture and is amazing to watch. You can see more of her work at http://infernoartstudio.com
The final three rounding out the five are Darren McKeag, Seth Leibowitz and Chris Callen all from Cycle Source magazine.
These three were first featured this year as a group at the Broken Spoke Saloon’s “Legends Gallery” during Sturgis and have made several stops with their collective collection including the Indian Larry Block Party’s “Smoke & Mirrors.” See more of Darren’s work at https://www.facebook.com/darren.mckeag?fref=ts , Seth’s work at https://www.facebook.com/tatjew?fref=ts , and Chris’s work at https://www.facebook.com/cyclesource
