Alpinestars joins SURU for Celeritas Show

Alpinestars is proud to be a part of the unique CELERITAS show, uniting motorcycle culture and art. Raising money and awareness for the Riders for Health organization, over seventeen artists contributed beautiful works of art, using motorcycle helmets, Alpinestars’ suits and a Suzuki Hayabusa as canvases. Curated by Nip Tuck’s John Hensley and Linkin Park’s Joe Hahn, CELERITAS (Latin for speed) is a show that communicates their passion for motorcycle culture as well as fine art and street art. Hahn and Hensley tapped the resources of world-class artists and motorcycle industry leaders to support the efforts of Riders for Health.

In addition to participating as a sponsor, Alpinestars worked in conjunction with artist Dr. Romanelli by providing technical motorcycle apparel as a canvas for his contribution to the show. Using an Alpinestars racing suit, gloves and boots as a template and Mad Max as inspiration, Dr. Romanelli has deconstructed and reinterpreted the motorcycle suit.

Works of art themselves, the racing suits of Alpinestars’ own team riders will also be on display including those of Casey Stoner, Ben Spies, Nicky Hayden and Troy Corser.

Other legendary artists participating in the show include Barry McGee, Joe Hahn, Mike Shinoda, Mark Dean Veca, Audrey Kawasaki, Jim Lee, James Jean, Stash, Futura, Jesse James, Jeff McMillan, Alex Pardee, Troy Lee, Usugrow, Estevan Oriol and Nathan Cabrera. CELERITAS opened on July 11th and will be up for viewing at the Suru store until Aug. 13th. All proceeds from sales of the art will go directly to the Riders for Health foundation.
