Tomac Releases Limited Edition Johnny T Painting

Tomac Bikes announces today the completion of a limited edition John Tomac painting commissioned over two years ago. The painting is based off a 1995 photo by Tom Moran, which features Johnny drifting through a corner at the Kamikaze, and was painted by Tomac graphic artist Randy Rigg.“The Kamikaze has always been a very special event in US downhill racing history,” says Tomac owner Joel Smith. “And I think Johnny style and aggressiveness epitomized the racing at the time. The painting really captures the race’s essence of speed, and for those of you who attended those events, it will surely evoke the majesty of racing back then.”Tomac will do a limited run of 20 John Tomac autographed giclee prints on canvas, which will also be hand signed by the artist. The prints will cost $250 with $50 of each print going to the Tara Llanas Road to Recovery Fund. “My goal was to create a realistic portrayal of Johnny’s racing” says artist Randy Rigg. “The painting is just snapshot of a moment, but there is this inherent movement that I hope was captured in it.”The giclee prints are produced by the artist himself on museum quality acid-free, canvas using a high-end archival printing process. They measure 15 inches by 20 inches by 1.25 inch deep and can be hung as-is or framed. Tomac Bikes is headquartered in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. Tomac Bikes strives for high performance, innovation, and superior products.
