Studio 72 Design are a small collaborative studio of artists and designers who work on a wide range of visual material from TV and film to graphics, artwork and sculpture. Inevitably, at Studio 72 there are some petrol-heads...many of which seem to have an inexplicable leaning towards air-cooled Porsches! The print designs that form the basis of this collection reflect that.
In this series of artworks the perception of the viewer changes with viewing distance, cleverly making the image both photographic and semi-abstract at the same time. The feature colour on many of the prints is taken from the original paint colour records.
Historic Car Art has been operating from it's rural Derbyshire base since 2004. A business built over time from a passion for cars, their history and the racing exploits of drivers and manufacturers combined with a great interest in how this has all been depicted over the years in both artwork and promotional advertising.
The founder of the company believes very strongly in bringing high quality products and a first class personal service to its clients. This approach means that Historic Car Art is now a leader in the acquisition and supply of original automotive art and vintage posters, building collections for discerning private and corporate clients worldwide.
