The most exclusive collaboration in the motorcycle world
Raised in Miami, Arsham attended the Cooper Union in New York City where he received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award in 2003. Soon thereafter Arsham toured worldwide with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company as the company’s stage designer. The experience led to an ongoing collaborative practice which continues as Arsham works with world renowned artists, musicians, designers, and brands including Porsche and Dior. Arsham’s uchronic aesthetics revolves around his concept of fictional archaeology. Working in a multitude of disciplines he creates and crystallizes ambiguous in-between spaces and situations, and stages what he refers to as future relics of the present. Always iconic, most of the objects that he fabricates refer to the late 20th century or millennial era, when technological obsolescence unprecedentedly accelerated along with the digital dematerialization of our world. While the present, the future and the past poetically collide in his intruiging yet playful visions between romanticism and pop art, Arsham also experiments with the timelessness of certain symbols and gestures across cultures. In recent years Arsham’s practice has begun to bridge the gap between fine art and commerce through a number of commercial business ventures dedicated to the conception of limited edition artworks aimed at reaching a wider global audience, such as Arsham Editions, Arsham Living and Objects IV Life. In 2021 Arsham was appointed the role of creative director of the Cleveland Cavaliers, becoming the first-ever fine artist to hold a position of this nature. Arsham’s work has been shown at world's most important contemporary art museumms and galleries.
Disturbingly attractive, avant-garde, incredibly iconic and high-tech yet with clear references to the great classics of motorcycling, MV Agusta’s Superveloce was a natural choice for this project. Neo-classic, high-tech racer. The perfect balance between classic lines and modern, state-of-the-art technology. The Superveloce is a true masterpiece of design inspired by MV Agusta’s glorious racing legacy, yet the bike is intended to be a tribute to the brand’s tradition of continuous innovation and high-precision engineering. Inspired in its breathtaking looks by MV Agusta’s glorious racing legacy, powered by a latest-generation 3-cylinder engine and packed with futuristic technology, it takes no prisoners when it comes to performance.
