Motorsports Venues - Art Rotondo Partners With The Grand Prix Of Canada


Montreal, June 1, 2011: Arturo Rotondo, a young and vibrant Montreal artist, whose reputation has already crossed the Québec and Canadian borders notably because of his passion for automobile racing, will be at the heart of the activities going on at the Grand Prix of Canada on June 10-12. At the request of the promoter of the most important summer event in Montreal, fans will be able to view customized works of art around the Gilles-Villeneuve circuit, and, when purchasing a copy of the official souvenir program, receive as a bonus, a limited edition poster exclusively produced by the artist only for this program.

Born with tremendous artistic talent, Arturo combined his gift with his racing passion handed down by his late father. This is the inspiration that drives the Art Rotondo artistic expression. Each brush stroke applied to his work is made with the pure exhilaration of a true racing fan living his artistic dream through his paintings. The Montreal native has revolutionized the world of Motorsport art by developing a unique method to capture the speed and the thrill of racing in his work.

Currently working with many racers in Formula 1, IndyCar, NASCAR and DTM, Art Rotondo, has quickly become the reference in this prestigious sport. Arturo makes it his duty to continue thriving so that the Art Rotondo brand becomes a household name in the fascinating world of racing. Having been part of numerous art exhibitions around the world, this summer, fans will have a chance to meet Art in person as he showcases his talents to his public.

For the Grand Prix of Canada, Arturo has produced striking portraits of all 24 of the F1 drivers competing in Montreal. They can be seen on banners placed at the Cosmos Bridge and also above each F1 driver's team garage. Fans will have the chance to view and purchase his entire Art Lithograph product line which will be available in two official vending stands located throughout the Gilles-Villeneuve Circuit on the much anticipated weekend of June 10, 11 and 12th. His stands will also include a full array of his custom painted racing helmets for fans to admire.
