Johnny Sutherland chosen as official World Cup artist

Lochaber artist and designer Johnny Sutherland has been chosen as the official artist for the 2012 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup. Johnny will be documenting this years event with his unique sketches, drawings and paintings inspired by the electric atmosphere of the world cup. The riders, course, race village and crowds will all be used to produce a body of exciting artwork that will be put on display at the Creative Hub and in an exhibition after this years spectacular event.

Johnny produces funky illustration, graphic design and adventure films from a small studio in Roy Bridge, at the foot of Nevis Range. A keen biker, skier and climber, Johnny will be producing work on site at this years event. An exciting challenge for the artist:

“The UCI Mountain Bike World Cup at Nevis Range is amazing and I am a huge fan, so the opportunity to be involved this year and produce artwork at this massive and exciting event is huge for me!”

Feel free to say hi to Johnny if you see him drawing and sketching over the weekend. Some of the artwork will be on display in the Creative Hub, pop in for a look. More of Johnny’s work can be seen on his website.
