The FIM and Motul launch an auction of a unique graffiti painting produced by French artist Hozoï during the FIM Gala Ceremony, hosted in last December in Monaco. The piece of art which celebrates the motorcycle community is signed by the 2013 FIM World Champions, as Marc Marquez, Tom Sykes, Antonio Cairoli or Laia Sanz and other FIM Legends. The proceeds of the sale will be donated to Riders for Health, the FIM official charity that has beenproviding for 25 years a tremendous work by delivering health care across the African continent.

Motul and Hozoï have been collaborating for more than 10 years on various art projects. An artistic collaboration moved by a common passion for motorsports and the desire of fashioning ties between art and automotive industry in order to provoke creative encounters. In that frame of mind, a new project with the French concept graffiti and metalwork artist was launched in 2012: the “Hozoï two-wheel trip”.Over seven months, Hozoï travelled across five continents and shared his passion for motorcycling bydesigning pieces of art, promoting universal human values and highlighting that the way people usemotorcycles strongly depends on their culture and environment.

This unique graffiti painting performed live by Hozoï at the FIM GALA, is the outcome of this enthralling trip packed with authentic experiences and memorable encounters.

The auction will be open on February 12th 2014 on the FIM website.
