Sly Hill Showdown by David Uhl
30 x 20 Hand-Embellished Print
Every year David Uhl creates a new masterpiece for the Sturgis Rally and for Daytona Bike Week. This year’s Sturgis piece, titled “Sly Hill Showdown” combines some of David’s favorite things in life and joins past offerings such as “Stranger in Town”, “An August to Remember” and “Whiskey Business” in this collection.
In David’s words, ”Approaching this years commemorative piece was highly influenced by my March Daytona release. As I did earlier in the year, I wanted to portray some unusual moment that may happen during the course of the Rally. In this case, I chose the depiction of a classic hot rod interacting with one of the largest growing segments of the riding community, a woman. Last year, I followed 3 of the coolest Rat Rods out to the Buffalo Chip, and intrigued with what these guys had done with their cars, I realized that they were amazingly similar to the custom bike builders I know. As an artist, I am always looking for a unique angle, so I decided to put them together, way outside the fray of the huge crowds on Main Street. They are on Sly Hill Road, just underneath the Sly H ill Sturgis sign that we all have come to know and love. I hope you enjoy this years commemorative.”
