V I C T O R I O U S @ M2 GALLERY
By Renae Smith - Photography by Toni Veziris
Victorious, hosted at m2 Gallery on Thursday 28 May 2015, was motorcycle inspired photography exhibition hosted by Sol Invictus Motorcycle Co.
The exhibition sought to celebrate the many angles of motorcycle enthusiasm. From the bikes we ride to the people who ride them. Taking centre stage in the middle of the gallery was the fully customised Sol Invictus Mercury Café Racer with hand painted tank by Sydney street artist Mike Watts.
Adorning the walls of the Surry Hills gallery were photographs by well know Sydney photographer Cole Bennetts, Cam Elkins from Stories of Bike, Kate Disher-Quill, Heleana Genaus from In Venus Veritas and Billy Zammit. All five photographers have been influential in documenting the burgeoning custom motorcycle scene in Australia, providing their own unique take on the people behind the movement and the machines that embody their passion.
The evening celebrated the ride on two wheels with over 300 guests visiting the gallery over the course of the 3-hour exhibition. Original signed artworks from the evening are available for sale and for a current list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Victorious was supported by local craft brewery Murray's Craft Brewing Co, Australia’s own premium vodka Alaskan Rock Vodka, Trolley’d Mobile Bar Service and Sydney retail institution The Stables.
