One more time, Ducati and Automobili Lamborghini have come together to bring the event to life «Art of Creating Myths» (The art of creating myths), held just a few days ago in the elegant spaces of the Galleria Cavour.
There he showed up “Centaur”a work of art created by the talent of Paolo Troilo based on one of the examples of the limited series Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini Speciale Clienti and originated as a continuation of “Minotaur”a 2021 painting by the artist on the body of a Lamborghini Huracán EVO.
Paolo Troilo (Taranto, 1972) is an Italian artist known for his unique hyperrealistic finger painting technique, unique in the world. “Centauro” is painted with this technique in the figurative representation of a man’s arms bent in acceleration that emerge on both sides of the tank, and is completed with other tools in the abstract geometric decomposition that characterizes the rest of the motorcycle parts. .
This work combines myth and reality, embodying a superhuman strength that merges with the rationality enhanced by the shapes and volumes of the Streetfighter V4, thus transmitting power and an unlimited feeling of confidence in one’s own abilities.
«Art of Creating Myths»: Love for art and motors
The idea of ”Art of Creating Myths» was born in September 2022, coinciding with the world premiere of the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghinithe second chapter of the collaboration between the two companies after the Diavel 1260 Lamborghini.
With the Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini, it was presented in a limited and numbered edition of 630 copies characterized by a decoration in Citrea Green and Dac Orange. But the uniqueness of this project did not end there.
