LIMITED EDITION ARTWORK BY THE GRAPHIC ARTIST

Joe Balanda

ABOUT JOE
Joe was born on the Isle Of Man but has travelled extensively around the world & lived & worked in London for nearly 10 years. Joe was brought up in the Hotel business in the heart of Douglas, on the promenade, during the height of the Islands tourist industry. His love of motorcycles started at the age of 5 when he first started going 2's up around the course with the riders. His passion extended to spending every day at the paddock, getting to know all the great riders of the late '60s & '70s who stayed in the family Hotel. By the time he was 7 years old, he could tell every make/model of a motorbike just by the distinct sound they made before they appeared! He has now settled back on his "beloved Isle" with his wife & 3 children. A recent life-changing illness has focused him on his long-standing love of art. Joe Says,

" Motorcycles have changed so much from those early days, but the excitement of seeing those beautiful lines on new or older bikes

never leaves you. there is just something so visceral & raw coupled with elegance & danger all rolled into one. They are true pieces of art"

This is Joe's first-ever signature piece of TT Artwork. "Joe Explains, I have tried to capture the raw excitement of the riders in this piece. I have completely toned down the background so that nothing detracts your eyes from the main images & expressions of the riders.

I have tried to capture every little minute detail of these superb machines & highlighted the riders & bikes with a soft glow to soften the overall effect of the picture. the balance of colours & tones brings everything to life in glorious detail.

This, for me, was very hard to achieve & I spent many, many hours discarding work. In the end, I am very pleased with the picture & for me, it captures the whole essence of what the Isle of Man TT. Races are all about."
