55 Chevy Be-lair black with yellow flames. Oil on canvas painting, 36" x 36".
My brother is a slot car connoisseur. Many weekends we hang out together in his shop listing slot cars, and as an artist I will make up visual signs and create set-ups for him. During these times I became intrigued by some of the illustrations of slot cars from the 60s/70s painted on packaging boxes of Scalextric, AFX Aurora, and Tyco. Primitive, dated, but with an aggressive quick paint approach, minus the glitzy Photoshop, computer application, there was a fascinating freshness to them.
We began to discuss how it would be interesting to take an HO slot car of interest and paint it in a more contemporary style, a neo-retro look. Rejecting Photoshop, air brush, and photo-realism, I applied my painterly approach allowing for the gutsy, gritty, quick action works of the earlier illustrators. Additionally I'm now accepting commissions for those that want their own collectible slot car painted in this style. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings".
