ORIGINAL SERIES: MERCEDES BENZ

Mercedes Benz​ Corporation commissioned a series of 8 original works of my art at the age of 23.

The guidelines were straightforward and simplistic in style.

They only requested my interpretation of their automobiles and brand for display in various high profile locations including Carolina Panther Football Stadium, numerous Mercedes Benz showrooms and corporate offices. The bold logo remained crisp as the motion of the cars ignited a fresh sense of painterly style throughout. Sections of cut outs from various parts of the painting represented a time-distance element - boasting of the longevity of this brand due to the highest quality craftsmanship.


"I completely enjoyed working with this brand on this series as just like their incredible vehicles and brand - they proved to be free, exploring and vibrant in their approach to the project. This offered me enormous flexibility to explore the brand itself while fusing these elements with fast action imagery behind the machines."

This was 1 in a series of 8 paintings that remain in the Mercedes Benz corporate art collection.
