INTRODUCING - Art on Leather
An Amazing Form of Automotive Art
Art on Leather is is a very different art form where all the details of the subject are modelled into cowhide leather and only then coloured with acrylic airbrush paints.
As can be seen in the image above the modelling of the leather means that the subject is raised off the surface (like a medallion) creating a greater sense of depth and a highly realistic 3D look to the work.
Besides the visual effect all the details of the subject can actually be touched and felt by the viewer thereby engaging an important second human sense; you are able to feel all the details such as, in the case of the BMW 530, the wheels, the headlights - even the very fine details of the radiator grille.
It is this unusual and very specific aspect of each of my works which means that the pleasure obtained by the viewer from the work is substantially enhanced and in the process it becomes an interesting conversation piece.
