Art Commissions

Over and above the works shown for sale in the Gallery, I welcome the opportunity to produce works to a client’s exact requirements


I would be pleased to work with you in conceptualising and designing an original work for your home, office, man cave, bar area, or a special gift for a relative etc. - according to your exact personal requirements.


You may, for example, have a photograph of a specific automobile that has an interesting history or which you owned in the past.  Or it may be similar to one of the works as shown in the Porfolio that I have produced where you may require a different size image or colour for the vehicle.


Commissioned artworks are normally available in about five to ten weeks depending on the size selected, the complexity of the work and the availability of myself with regard to my present commitments.

You are welcome to contact me by e-mail to discuss your ideas and we can plan the piece together on a personal level, utilizing apps such as Skype or WhatsApp.  


At this stage I would work from your images, possibly supplemented with images from the Web to work out a suggested layout.  From there the exact sizing of the piece, an estimated date of completion and a price for our mutual agreement would be discussed and agreed upon.


Once all the details of the work have been finalised a 60 % deposit would be required so that the project may commence.


All of my art works are supplied with the following:

  •   a signed Certificate of Authenticity,

  •   a document detailing the Production Process with images of all the stages,

  •   an Artist Statement and

  •   a document detailing the history of the vehicle where appropriate.


For additional information on commissioning an artwork please contact me through the  Contact form.

An Interesting Commission
The modelled leather of the Toyota Dakar Rally car
The completed artwork by Alan Dent of the Toyota Dakar Winner
Presentation of the artwork to Michelle Hall

One of my most interesting commissions was received from the HALLSPEED Team following an introduction by Roger McCleery to Glyn and Michelle Hall. 

The  team builds the Toyota Hilux DAKAR Rally entry under contract from TOYOTA Gazoo Racing at a dedicated facility close to the Kyalami Race Track, Johannesburg.

To celebrate their outstanding DAKAR 2019 win Michelle commissioned me to reproduce a work of the Toyota Hilux at speed for Glyn who led the design, development  and manufacture of the vehicle. 

The image shows Michelle receiving the pictorial  in Glyn's office.

"I was looking for something very unique to celebrate the memory of our teams great achievement in winning the 2019 edition of the DAKAR  Rally for TOYOTA GAZOO Racing.

The work I commissioned from Alan Dent is a perfect and realistic rendition of a truly exciting and magical moment in time for the Hallspeed team.


And the work was given with tremendous pride to a genius of a man, who won the Dakar Championship for Toyota and South Africa.


Thank you Alan, your work is truly magnificent !”

Michelle Hall, Director, HALLSPEED, Kyalami.
