戴夫·曼《轻松骑士》杂志

戴夫·曼

It is next to impossible to talk about Easyriders Magazine, or biker art in general without including illustrator and biker 艺术家 戴夫·曼 in 日 e conversation. Since 1972 戴夫·曼 has been directly responsible for shaping 日 e visual world of motorcycle culture with his Rockwellesque illustrations of 日 e motorcycle 生活方式 as we know it today; breathing life into his art with 日 e depiction of real 生活方式 events and issues into every illustration 日 at has been published in Easyriders Magazine with his surreal narratives have helped legitimize 日 e application of 艺术家ic design in 日 e motorcycle industry.
可以说,绘画和对艺术的热爱从戴夫出生的那一天起就一直存在。戴夫(Dave)的父亲,他是一生的商业插画家,也是英国伦敦的画家协会会员。戴夫(Dave)出生于密苏里州的堪萨斯城,早在1957年,他就一直在努力绘制50根Hot Rods并钉住女孩。他的早期绘画为他赢得了在堪萨斯城当地一家习俗商店进行汽车缝制的工作。
戴夫(Dave)的想法笼罩着西海岸的魅力,’直到他不能’为了抵制狂暴的冲动,他开始了许多公路旅行中的第一次,他和一个朋友挤入了他的定制47雪佛兰轿跑车,他们将橡胶一直烧到加利福尼亚的圣莫尼卡。在西海岸时,他莫名其妙地发现了当地的风俗店海湾地区的消声器。切碎的哈雷’他看到迷住了他。自由,力量和个人主义的表达震撼了他的头脑,并为艺术创造力的新水平打开了大门,这将使戴夫·曼恩(Dave Mann)用他对哈雷戴维森摩托车和摩托车的一种艺术插图将其推向摩托车设计文化的最前沿。至今从未有过的骑自行车的人的生活方式!
返回家园后,他购买了他的第一辆摩托车,1948年的Panhead,并创建了他的第一个摩托车插图“ Hollywood Run”。 1963年,他参加了堪萨斯城的定制车展。凭借唯一的定制摩托车参赛作品,评委们创建了一个新的表演班,以表彰Dave的努力。一位朋友向加利福尼亚定制汽车设计师,第一本《斩波器》杂志的发行商Big Daddy Roth发送了一张宝丽来“好莱坞奔跑”。 Big Daddy Roth吹捧了完全独特的风格和视角,委托了Dave的许多海报。
Dave continued perfecting his one of a kind style and after becoming friends with David Poole he incorporated 日 e fine art of architectural rendering into his surreal style, using 日 e craft of detailed precision and mechanical perspective to add a new dimension into his motorcycle art. He even studied at 日 e Kansas City Institute of art to help broaden his 艺术家ic approach. After answering an ad in Easyriders Magazine searching for a biker influenced 艺术家, in 1972 Dave began working at Easyriders with his unique renderings of 日 e Harley Davidson Motorcycle and bike 生活方式 on 日 e published center pages of 日 e magazine.
戴夫·曼’s art depicted 日 e full spectrum of 日 e biker 生活方式, including many different elements 日 at are part of 日 e 生活方式 itself, and general topics surrounding 日 e biker culture. Some of Dave’s creations are motif based, and an example is an illustration named “Ghost Rider” 日 at depicts a biker riding intently down a wild west desert road with a ghost cowboy shadowing him in parallel atop his horse.
其他插图涉及当时的有争议问题,例如“ Fuzz Busters”插图中描绘的警察骚扰,其中显示3名骑自行车的人被警察跟踪。另一个相似的插图显示了2个警察在骑单车的女友观看时搜索骑自行车的人。
戴夫(Dave)的方法从来没有针对谴责或对抗,而只是ek着舌头说:“嘿,我们看见了”,或者“嘿,兄弟,你知道这是怎么回事!”
No matter what 日 e topic was aimed at, every illustration 戴夫·曼 created was focused around 日 ings 日 at bikers understood, 日 ings 日 at mattered to 日 ose who lived 日 e motorcycle 生活方式, and quite often had even experienced. They were light hearted and poked fun at 日 e biker whose bike wouldn’t start while his bros stood around laughing at him, or 日 e frustration of 日 e biker who ran out of gas, or got a flat tire while on a run with his bros. Other topics were more serious in nature, such as a large group run to bury a fallen brother.
While 日 ere were some renderings 日 at touched on controversial issues within 日 e biker community, or poked fun at 日 e demise of common biker situations, 日 e majority of Dave’s art work celebrated 日 e beauty of being in 日 e wind, or hanging out and having fun while living 日 e biker 生活方式, and 日 e expression of freedom 日 at is 日 e heart of 日 e of 日 e 生活方式 itself. While critics were quick to say his art was sexist, demeaning to women or just plain offensive, 日 ose who cast 日 eir negative judgment on his artwork were never part of 日 e motorcycle community, nor lived 日 e 生活方式, and in general had no effect on his continued work, Easyriders Magazine, or 日 e biker community.
随着岁月的流逝,戴夫·曼(Dave Mann)的艺术备受追捧,您可以在骑自行车的酒吧,定制商店,摩托车俱乐部房屋甚至热爱汽车的热销汽车商店中看到他的艺术,这些人喜欢摩托车的光滑细节, 戴夫·曼用来绘制这些经典插图的独特方法。虽然他的插图被认为与Easyriders杂志每月发布的定制自行车的传播,技术技巧和摩托车文化文章同样重要,但他的效果图也刺激了定制摩托车的建造者和画家,他们被迫提出新的异国情调和新鲜的自行车设计和思维吹油漆工作。您可以说Dave的工作是一种创造性的催化剂,它帮助摩托车定制设计和建筑社区突破了定制设计和绘画的界限,创造了突破性的定制设计和风格。
从来没有任何一种理论决定过定制哈雷摩托车的外观,而许多骑自行车的人都喜欢哈雷的正装。哈雷戴维森(Harley Davidson)斩波器是迄今为止70年代至今最流行的造型。
随着他的知名度持续增长,戴夫传达了他对骑自行车的生活方式的热情和热爱,自由以及最普遍的误解,即所有骑自行车的人都通过他的艺术品来忍受不属于生活方式或文化的那些人的日常生活主题,例如如圣诞节,婚礼和其他常见生活事件。在1980年代初期,随着骑自行车的人的生活方式开始发展和壮大,摩托车行业也是如此,《 Easyriders》杂志和Dave Mann都在快速增长的定制建筑商和画家社区中起着主导作用。 Easyriders每个月都会在其杂志的页面上发布新的和新鲜的实例,介绍如何将辛勤工作和创新设计应用于定制的Harley摩托车,并且随着新的定制建造者的出现,越来越多的人开始关注该杂志。不只是典型的机车破布。
成为摩托车生活方式和文化的一部分,不仅仅意味着骑着砍刀或采取一定的态度,而且在大多数情况下,它总是与站起来并为我们的集体权利而战。在摩托车界,人们普遍被视为违法行为和毒品疯狂的污名化,因此组织和协会成立起来捍卫我们的权利,而Easyriders和Dave Mann的信仰都直言不讳。戴夫·曼(Dave Mann)曾写过几封书面消息,其中之一就是摩托车汽油箱,上面刻着大胆生动的火焰,写着“我们的美国权利在燃烧”。这是摩托车文化中人们的普遍感觉,它促使社区站起来并让他们的声音被听到。戴夫(Dave)的作品通过声音清晰清晰,描绘了那些过着摩托车生活方式的人们的价值观和感受。
What was it 日 at attracted so many to 日 e biker 生活方式? For 日 e most part is pure freedom and desire to be in 日 e wind without restraint or restriction, but you can’t point to a single explanation or reason 日 at would answer such a question but one 日 ing is certain, 日 ose who live 日 is 生活方式 do so because 日 ey hold strong and unyielding values and anything 日 at would try to break 日 eir spirit will only strengthen 日 eir resolve!
There have been many critics in 日 e art world 日 at have tried to put Dave and his biker art in a category 日 at would help 日 em explain his 艺术家ic motivation or gather a rational understanding of what his art is saying to 日 e viewer. Such critics who are not part of 日 is 生活方式 couldn’甚至还没有开始掌握戴夫插图的含义或内在信息,因此他们使用敌对,夸张和寓言等词语,而不是像爱,自由,美丽,享受或个人主义这样的世界。
If you strip away 日 e negative viewpoints from non motorcycle culture art critics, remove 日 e bias of bikers 通过 日 e general public, law enforcement and government what you are left with is a man who created art 日 at was a reflection of his life, his dreams, and as he saw 日 e world around him which strikingly parallels Vincent Van Gogh 日 e Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work was known for its rich color, raw beauty, bold vivid color and emotional honesty. Van Gogh’s work inspired other painters setting a new standard for other 艺术家s who worked on canvas.
戴夫·曼(Dave Mann)于9月11日去世 2004, and while he is physically gone, his memory, his art, and 日 e impact he had made in 日 e motorcycle community is still alive and very much still considered a major influence 通过 custom Harley builders, painters, as well as other 艺术家s, tattoo 艺术家s and graphics designers world wide. Of course we can’t forget all of 日 e bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts who found beauty, freedom and enjoyment from his illustrations, posters and paintings. 戴夫·曼’s impact was so great 日 at every year in December local and national motorcycle industry get together to celebrate and pay tribute to him with 日 e 戴夫·曼 Chopperfest held in Ventura 加利福尼亚州.
当被问及为什么菜刀节如此受欢迎时,来自《风中》杂志的大戴夫·汉森(Big Dave Hansen)说:“整个两轮摩托世界感到的悲伤是一种表达,因为那些热爱和尊敬的大卫与妻子在台上排了三个月,以纪念他。死亡。对两者的爱“artist” and 日 e “lifestyle”他通过大量展示他的原始艺术和同样巨大的定制摩托车展示来实现完美融合。全国各地的自行车制造商都对大卫·曼恩逝世表示敬意,并欢迎他的签名活动的诞生。 Chopperfest一直致力于通过具备足够创造力和创造力的人才来致力于摩托车的设计,功能和艺术。”
很难想象一个人的艺术作品会产生如此广泛的影响力,其影响力远远超出了摩托车文化和行业范围,以其对哈雷戴维森摩托车的远见,对骑车人生活方式的热爱以及在他离开摩托车后的很多年都吸引着人们。死亡激发了其他艺术家,定制的Harley建筑工人,画家以及任何看到他的作品的人的灵感。肉体的人可能不见了,但是他对生活方式的热爱,哈雷戴维森摩托车和他在风中所经历的自由将永远存在于他的艺术品,绘画,定制摩托车以及任何受到其艺术启发或感动的人中,如果“住骑,住骑”对您来说是重要的生活方式价值,那么戴夫·曼(Dave Mann)也将生活在您的体内!
骑在!
