Motorcycle lifestyle artist John Guillemette is from Revere, Massachusetts. His motorcycle and chopper themed oil paintings have been displayed at custom bike shows all over the USA as well as the Legend’s Gallery in Sturgis, SD.
John works his paintings in extreme realism and detail to capture all the hard work that has gone into the building of the custom motorcycles he uses as his subject matter for his art.
The long hours behind the easel have not gone unnoticed, as John is well recognized as an exceptional talent. Many of John’s paintings have been featured multiple times in prominent magazines such as V-Twin and Easyriders.
In 2007, John introduced his “Masters and Machines” portraits. The first three custom builders featured were Dave Perewitz, Jesse James, and Arlen Ness.
In 2008 his portraits of custom bike buiding legends Jesse James and Arlen Ness from the “Masters and Machines” series were selected to hang in the Motorcycle Museum Hall of Fame.
Let’s take a look at some of John Guillemette's paintings.
