Lamborghini and Ducati have joined forces to celebrate art through the vision of artist Paolo Troilo, who has put his creativity at the service of the two brands by transforming two iconic models into works of art.
Held at Galleria Cavour as part of Arte Fiera Bologna, the exhibition “Art of creating myths” brings together a Lamborghini Huracán EVO, which became the canvas for the work titled “Minotauro“, and a Ducati Streetfighter V4 Lamborghini for the work “Centauro”.
Taranto artist Paolo Troilo is renowned for his unique hyper-realist fingerpainting technique, which was used to create both pieces, with the former symbolising the sublimation between the artist’s vision and the iconic value of a brand like Lamborghini.
Its cars, prized for their design, performance and quality, become true one-offs, on a par with works of art. Through the vigorous features of a male body, the paintings express the dynamism, power, and innermost emotions the artist felt when driving the Huracán EVO.
His tribute to the vehicle lies in the fusion of the man, the bull and the concept of myth, expressed in the indomitable — supernatural and almost animalistic — force exuded by the male figure painted on the sides of the car.
At the exhibition launch, the CEOs of Lamborghini and Ducati unveiled the two vehicles together, to reinforce the connection the two Italian brands have. “Minotauro” and “Centauro” will be on display until 5 February at Galleria Cavour.
