Monster – Art

Since 1993 an icon and inspiration to the realm of visual and creative arts, the Monster is the face in the crowd, the lover and partner at once. Powerfully eloquent, it has created a cult following among motorcycling enthusiasts and people who associate the Monster with a work of art. Behind every Monster, there is a tale to tell. Tell us your story!
To celebrate the iconic value of the new Monster 821, Ducati asked the Italian mural artist "2501" to free his creative spirit and incorporate the motorcycle into an original creation which would accentuate the style and dynamism of the shapes in a new dimension.
